Marissa Meyer Author Event!!!
Friday, January 30th | 7 p.m.
Come celebrate the release of Fairest: Levana’s Story! Author Marissa Meyer is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles. She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and three demanding cats. She’s a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, any occasion that requires a costume), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was a child. She may or may not be a cyborg. There is no charge to come to the event, but you must purchase a copy of one of Ms. Meyer's books from Little Shop of Stories to get in the signing line.
Sharon Draper Author Event!!!
Tuesday, February 3rd | 7 p.m.
As an educator, Sharon was honored as National Teacher of the Year. As an author, her books have spent considerable time on the New York Times Bestsellers List and have received numerous awards, including FIVE Coretta Scott King Literary Awards.
Sharon has written so many great books including Tears of a Tiger, Copper Sun, Out of My Mind, and Panic.
Her newest is Stella by Starlight, in which a young girl must deal with issues that arise with the resurgence of the Klan while living in an African American community in North Carolina in the 1930s.
As in all her books, Sharon displays all the skills of a terrific storyteller. Stella is superb.
p.s. Sharon served as the chair of the 2014 National Book Award committee in the Young People's Literature category. Dave had the honor of working under Sharon on that panel and is thrilled to have her come to Little Shop for the fist time.
Summer Camp Registration Begins
Saturday, February 7th | 9 a.m.
Detailed camp information will be posted on our website sometime before January 31st. Here’s some information about registration. In an effort to be fair, here are our guidelines for signing up for camp:
* Camp registration begins on Saturday, February 7th at 9 a.m. Registration must be done in person, by the child’s parent or legal guardian.
* Our camps are extremely popular and many will fill up the first day of registration. Yes, we know it’s crazy. We just wanted to warn you. (I believe the first person in line last year arrived at 6:30 a.m.)
* While in line on Saturday morning, you may not save spots for your friends. No line cutters! Let’s set a good example for our kids here!
* There is a $100 deposit per camp. In case of cancellation, $50 is NONREFUNDABLE. In case of cancellation within 21 days of the start of camp, the entire $100 deposit is nonrefundable.
We request that all camp deposits and other payments be made with checks. It helps immensely with record keeping.
