Happy Big Wish Day!

Pretty weedy goodness

The Big Wish comes out this week. Yay! I think… It’s just starting to turn springy after months of chilly murk and gloom. The gardeners and lawn-fanciers are PENT-UP. I wonder what will happen when these nice people take a break from clipping and edging and weed ‘n feeding to visit the bookstore (perhaps for a nice book on topiary, or water features, or butterfly gardening) and find ME, reading from my book about weeds? The weediest of weeds, the dreaded dandelion. The storyline involves a big-time scattering of weed seeds, too. We’re talking World Record, here. Could be very entertaining.

Here are the lovely book shops (and one gorgeous, super-splendid library) I’ll be visiting over the next few weeks:
Saturday May 7th, at 1pm: reading & drawing party & Mother’s Day Wish-card making at Powell’s Cedar Hills Crossing

On Saturday, May 14th at 1pm I’ll be reading and presenting at The Nantucket Atheneum.
On Nantucket! Oooooo. Lucky me.

Saturday May 21st at 2pm book-signing and wish-craft at Green Bean Books On Alberta, in NE Portland.

Saturday June 4th at 10 am The St Helens Book Shop (in St Helens, Or)

on June 11th 2 pm we’ll have sharks (With the National Geographic for Kid’s Writer, Ruth Musgrave) and dandelion wishes at  A Children’s Place . What a combo!
