Pride at Castro Valley Library

Colorful Rainbow sign that says, "Pride Storytime, Story Walk, and Dance Party!"

Castro Valley Library, Saturday, June 1, 1-2:30 pm

I am so honored that Castro Valley Library is making a Just. Like. You. Story Walk* for Pride Month. To kick things off, we’ll walk the Story Walk, have a Storytime, and then put on our dancing shoes for the PRIDE DANCE PARTY! You don’t want to miss the fun.

*To create a Story Walk, pages from a picture book are put on signs and placed along a path or trail. Children and their families can then walk along the path and read the story, step-by-step and page-by-page!


Heading to the Kentucky Book Festival, Y’all! October 21, 2023

If you’re in the area, you don’t want to miss the Kentucky Book Festival. So many authors will be there. I’ll be in the Children’s Tent with a great group of creators. And I’ll be doing a Just. Like. You. storytime at 10am. I grew up in Lexington, KY, going to the bookstore this festival is in, so it will be a special treat to come full circle and celebrate there.

Storytimes in Lexington, KY and Portland, OR!

I’m thrilled to be able to take this show on the road and see old friends and make new friends in Lexington, KY — my hometown — and Portland, OR! I’ll be at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, where I spent a lot of time as a young person. It’s an amazing, huge indie bookstore with something for everyone. And then, in May I’m off to Portland, OR for my son’s college graduation and a storytime at the famous Powell’s City of Books, the largest used and new bookstore in the world!

Storytime at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY, Sat. 3/25, 10:30am, 161 Lexington Green Circle
