Our outdoor summer of fun continues with a special visit from author Asia Citro, who will be joining us at our booth in the Mercer Island Farmers Market on Sunday, July 22nd!
Asia is the creator of one of our favorite current series for children, Zoey and Sassafras, which features magical animals, mystery, science, and adventure. We can't say enough about them, but if you need a stronger endorsement than that, Z&S have already won or are in the running for the following awards:
- A New York Public Library Best Books for Kids 2017 Selection
- A Mighty Girl Book of the Year
- Illinois Monarch Award Nominee 2018-2019
- Florida SSYRA Book Award Nominee 2018-2019
- Washington OTTER Award Nominee 2018-2019
Once you read one book in the series you'll definitely want to read them all, so we're offering a special deal on the bundle--the brand-new fifth book will be free! Not only will you and your kids get to meet the author and take home signed books, you'll be able to engage with a hands-on science experiment, rescuing a baby animal to take home! (No care or feeding required.) We'll be at the booth throughout the market so come on by and see us!
