Get Ready for Terry Border and this Season's Story Time!

Save the date of September 8th, because from 2-3pm Terry Border will be in the store for his latest picture book: Snack Attack! Only some of the snacks will be edible, so check first - the rest'll be part of Terry's demonstration of how he creates the bent objects that make up so many of his books! Terry's always a delight to have visit, so make sure to catch him while he's in town.

Story Time with Adriane Doherty

The fundamentals of language lay the foundation for reading - the stronger they are, the easier the rest becomes later. Any advantage - even just connecting the A-B-Cs to local landmarks - pushes learning forward. Grown-ups do this all the time for their children, but author Adriane Doherty's got a few books that can bring the landmarks to you! On Saturday, August 24th, we'll be hosting a special Story Time event starting at 1pm, featuring guest host Adriane Doherty, author of such books as Sweet Dreams Indiana and ABC Christmas.

Kids Ink's a Bookstore Against Borders

7/16 UPDATE: Throughout July 4th weekend, donates and 10% of all sales were to be donated to RAICES thanks to A Room of One's Own bookstore in Madison, WI and their online fundraiser Bookstores Without Borders. We've finished checking the math, and thanks to all of you we raised a total of $657.05 - well beyond our initial goal of $500! This money contributes to the grand total of the #BookstoresAgainstBorders campaign, whose goal was $50,000, and ended with $83,100!

"Finding Orion" Just Got Easier

The stars have always been a symbol of endless possibilities - ancestors looking down on us, ancient explosions circled by planets of their own, navigational tools where no other landmark's to be seen. Rion Kwirk was named for a constellation, and his quest to unravel the mysteries of his grandfather is the latest novel by John David Anderson and available for pre-order now: Finding Orion!
