Second Sunday Stories is a new series of kids picture book events at Book Passage-by-the-Bay in Sausalito. On the second Sunday of each month at 11am we welcome an author or illustrator into the store to share their book with us, there will be snacks and crafts and because it's Sunday morning, you could even come in your pajamas (we don't mind). Second Sunday Stories runs no longer than 45 minutes and is perfect for kids aged 2-6 and their families.

INK is a book group designed for avid readers and writers aged 8-12, it's run by middle grade author Amanda Conran and Joy LeRoy. INK meets at 6 pm every 3rd Friday of the month, to plot, illustrate and write their own books. They are already the authors of Dragon Mist and Dragon Fire, and are currently completing the third book in the trilogy, Dragon Island. All proceeds from book sales go to The Giving Tree. 

Meetings revolve around writing the current book, but INK members also discuss books and invite authors to speak about their books/writing process. There are many perks of membership, including the opportunity to read Advanced Reader's Copies of new books before they go on sale, writing book reviews that can be published in the bi-monthly Book Passage newsletter, and 10% discount coupons for every review you write. The best perk is working with a group of book fans with imaginations as big as your own! 

If you are interested in joining INK please contact joy@bookpassage.com with your name, parents name, your school and age and we'll sign you up. You can join at any time during the year.
