Mrs. Potts Finds Thanksgiving

Kick off your Thanksgiving week with Mrs. Potts Finds Thanksgiving

You’re invited! This Thanksgiving, you, your family, and friends will be able to start the holiday with Hugger, Mrs. Potts, and me on Monday, November 20th, at 5 p.m. That’s when I’ll be reading Mrs. Potts Finds Thanksgiving in The Den at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, WA. This story hour for ages 8 to 108 will include time for questions and comments, as well as refreshments. Hard cover and paperback copies will be available for sale, so you can make Mrs. Potts part of your annual celebration at home — or give a copy to a friend! This event is free and open to the public.

Don’t miss this first chance to hear the author (me, that is) read aloud the book Kirkus Reviews calls “a rebooted, briskly paced holiday parable that focuses on generosity and community connection.”

Zoom with me!
