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

Just. Like. You. is here!

I am so excited to share that Just. Like. You. came out on December 6, 2022. On that day, I went to two bookstores with my dear friend Angela to see it on the shelves. Seeing the book in the bookstores definitely made it real. And, of course since it was a birthday — there had to be cake!

Exciting New Picture Books

I love picture books, and I like to see what new books are coming. Below are a few books that I can’t wait to get my hands on!
