[Bookstore Day] Meg Lentz - Ready, Set, Build (San Francisco)

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 10:00am

 

Special Independent Bookstore Day Event!

In Ready, Set, Build, readers follow a busy dog builder as he sketches and plans his dream, clears rubble to make space, and gets to work digging, lifting, and sawing. He builds a house for himself and his bird friend, and satisfied after a hard day's work, they takes in all they've done and look forward to the next day of building.

Meg Fleming has built many wonders in the field of construction. Her greatest architectural achievement is a 17-foot gum wrapper chain that she made in the car when she was eleven years old. She loves hatching ideas, then building . . . and building . . . until they become her favorite thing: a story. Meg writes from her home outside of San Francisco, California, with her husband and kids who build things out of wood and wheels, flour and sugar, and bits and bytes. She also has a dog who always wears a hardhat.

In San Francisco, we'll also have an "Under the Yellow Umbrella" tribute to beloved author Amy Krouse Rosenthal, and our "Baking Booksellers" will choose some of their favorite cookie recipes from featured books, put in some overtime in the kitchen, and share the bounty. We will also be participating in an SF Bicycle Book Tour. For more info, click here
