Events For Kids & Teens
Yes, you can find information on all our events on our store calendar. But we want to make sure our younger patrons (and their parents) don't miss out on something special. Here, you'll find a list of events especially geared to kids of all ages. Feel free to print out our flyer attached below. Note that the flyer will change as events occur or are added.
Keep checking! Authors are most often on tour in the spring and fall.
