Has your child never written a letter? Does your child not know how to address an envelope? We are excited to announce that we are bringing the fine art of letter writing back! Twelve lucky 2nd-4th graders will be instructed in letter writing and will be matched with a pen pal at another indie bookstore in the country. Our club will meet once a month to write a letter to our pals! Our first meeting will be on May 21st at 6pm but call the shop today (or come in) to sign your child up since we expect it to fill quickly!
Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer Author Event!!!
Friday, May 29th | 7 p.m.
Little Shop of Stories, in partnership with GA Center for the Book, is bringing Jodi Picoult and her daughter and co-author Samantha van Leer to Decatur! This event will be held at Holy Trinity Parish (515 East Ponce de Leon Avenue in Decatur).
Their new book is Off the Page, a romantic YA novel. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the event.
This event is free and open to the public. First come, first seated.
Here's a description of Off the Page from Jodi Picoult's website:
Sixteen-year-old Delilah is finally united with Oliver—a prince literally taken from the pages of a fairy tale. There are, however, complications now that Oliver has been able to enter the real world. To exist in Delilah’s world, Oliver must take the place of a regular boy. Enter Edgar, who agrees to take Oliver’s role in Delilah’s favorite book. In this multilayered universe, the line between what is on the page and what is possible is blurred, but all must be resolved for the characters to live happily ever after. ... Fans of Sarah Dessen and Meg Cabot are sure to appreciate this novel about love, romance, and relationships.

Go Set A Watchman Release Party!
Monday, July 13th | 10 p.m. to midnight
Well here's something I never thought we would do.
We're having a midnight release party for Harper Lee's new book! This up and coming author had limited success with her first book, To Kill A Mockingbird. Maybe her sophomore effort will do better.
To attend you need to preorder a copy of Go Set A Watchman from Little Shop of Stories by June 15th.
This promises to be a fun and memorable family event.
