If I Could Keep you Little: A Pre-Mother’s Day Event

For moms + dads + cute little ones:  Join bestselling children’s book author and artist Marianne Richmond for an afternoon of connection and creativity.  The author of more than 50 books, Marianne is most known for her best-selling title, If I Could Keep you Little, which puts into words the emotional journey of parenthood:  wanting to freeze time while anticipating the wonderful things to come.

A San Jose resident and mom of four teens, Marianne’s desire with her books is to instill into kids that they are loved and cherished. That what they think and feel matters.  And hopefully to help lay a foundation for a relationship that grows as they do.  

She will read from books old and new as well as share some of the inspirations behind her titles.

In addition to reading, Marianne invites you to exercise your creativity through a simple art project — creating your own “kindness rock” to keep or share. The Kindness Rocks Project ( was created to spread inspiration and joy through randomly placed rocks along our way.
