A Swarm of Bees
Saturday, July 6, 10:30am
Rilla Alexander presents and signs Swarm of Bees

From the bestselling author of The Dark comes another brilliantly illustrated picture book that takes on an intense childhood emotion--this time, anger--in a rollicking, kid-friendly way. Whether you're a kid or a bee, sometimes you feel so mad, you buzz around looking for people to sting and trouble to make. See how one boy, a swarm of bees, and a whole town can get riled up and then find a way to feel better through the comfort of unconditional love and community. Printed in a brilliant palette of primary colors, brimming with beautiful dots and stripes,
Rilla Alexander's art sings. 

(All Ages) 


I'm Trying To Love Math

Sunday, July 7, 1pm
Bethany Barton presents and signs I'm Trying to Love Math

Do multiplication tables give you hives? Do you break out in a sweat when you see more than a few numbers hanging out together? Then I'm Trying to Love Math is for you! In her signature hilarious style, Bethany Barton introduces readers to the things (and people) that use math in amazing ways -- like music, and spacecraft, and even baking cookies! This isn't a how-to math book; it's a way to think differently about math as a necessary and cool part of our lives!
(Ages 4- 8)

Vlad the Rad

Saturday, July 13, 10:30am
Brigette Barrager presents and signs Vlad The Rad
Vlad is always getting in trouble at Miss Fussbucket's School for Aspiring Spooks. Unlike the other little vampires, witches, mummies, and ghosts, Vlad isn't very interested in learning spookiness. That's because...Vlad loves to skateboard! How can he possibly think about being a good spook when all he wants to do is practice his latest gnarly trick? Maybe Vlad can find a way to do both!  Brigette Barrager's debut author-illustrator project is full of energy, fun, and sweet tricks!
(Ages 3-7)


The Twelve
Saturday, July 13, 2:00pm
Cindy Lin presents and signs The Twelve
 Usagi can hear a squirrel's heartbeat from a mile away, and soar over treetops in one giant leap. She was born in the year of the wood rabbit, and it's given her extraordinary zodiac gifts. But she can never use them, not while the mysterious, vicious Dragonlord hunts down all those in her land with zodiac powers. Instead, she must keep her abilities--and those of her rambunctious sister Uma--a secret. After Uma is captured by the Dragonguard, Usagi can no longer ignore her powers. She must journey to Mount Jade with the fabled Heirs of the Twelve, a mystical group of warriors who once protected the land. As new mysteries unfold, Usagi must decide who she stands with, and who she trusts, as she takes on deadly foes on her path to the elusive, dangerous Dragonlord himself.
(Ages 8-12)
