I'm holding a food-inspired book party for Phoebe G. Green on Sunday, October 26 from 3-5pm at The Purple Crayon and YOUR whole family is invited! I'm lucky enough to have it in this gorgeous, inspirational space. The Purple Crayon holds workshops, and hosts amazing live music, a co-working space, where I've written much of Phoebe G. Green, and special events (like this)!
There will be food mentioned in the Phoebe G. Green books (so that right there is pretty exciting), like chickpea salad, roast duck, a goat-cheese tasting, and mini raspberry tarts. There will be a raffle for kids to submit great lunch ideas and win two free signed copies of the books. There will also be a reading, signing, and book sale courtesy of Galapagos Books.
BUT...my favorite thing of all is that I get to host a panel talk guest-staring all these amazing people about kids' food and school lunch ideas (check out their super duper bios below). So come for me, come for the free delicious food, and come for the food brilliance that will be there! As Phoebe G. Green would say, pretty cool, huh?
