We love hosting authors! In January 2016, we have hosted local debut author Julie Christine Johnson, her book In Another Life, Great historical fiction read, with a Seattle brief connection but set in beautiful southern France. We have autographed copies!
In February we hosted story time with Jessixa Bagley from Seattle. The Martha & Mary Kids came to the store to hear her read both her books- Before I Leave and Boats for Papa. She also drew Zelda, which she then gave to the M&M kids. Jessixa also visited Silverwood School and Pearson Elementary.
Next up Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock with her YA book The Smell of Other People's Houses. set in Alaska. Bonnie-Sue visited Kingston HS and North Kitsap HS and spoke to english classes. She then met with her fans, friends, family, & teen readers at That's A Some Italian. A long fun filled day.
We started March with Paul Tobin,
with his new book Genius Factor- How to Capture an Invisible Cat. Paul visited Poulsbo & Brownsville Elementary and attempted a visit at Vinland, BUT the power went out, due to a windstorm, so his visit was cut short. ALL the students knew Paul from his comics,
Plants VS Zombies. Paul also wrote for MARVEL . We so appreciate all the publishers sending authors to Kitsap so we can share them with our readers.
