The Sidewalk Sale's Coming!

Next Friday, August 3rd, Kids Ink's going to pitch its tent along with the neighboring stores and join the locally-famous weekend Sidewalk Sale! That Saturday, August 4th, Kids Ink may break its record for authors hosted on a single day.

At 11am on August 4th, YA authors Laura Martin and Mary Winn Heider will be in the store reading, signing, and chatting up the audience. Martin is two books into her Edge of Extinction series - about a group of young rangers attempting to navigate a world where the dinosaurs have come back- and is touring for her most recent book, Float. Float takes all the wonders and stresses of summer camp and adds unstable superpowers to the mix. Heider's first novel, The Mortification of Fovea Munson, only recently hit the shelves, and it's come out swinging - imagine having to work with your parents all summer, only your parents study cadavers for a living.

Then at 1pm, Kathleen Doherty and A. LaFaye take over. Doherty's a prolific children's author with over a dozen publications to her name. Her latest book is Don't Feed the Bear, about a war of words between a park ranger and the giant brown fuzzball she's trying to protect. No Frogs in School is one of LaFaye's first books, and examines what an animal lover has to do when his principal says he can't bring his pets to class anymore.

While writers regale you with stories, out in front of the store, we'll have tables filled with books, pictures, books, toys, and books, all marked down drastically. They may be a little worn around the edges, but there's no better chance to take a gamble on something new OR own a copy you're not afraid to loan. In fact, the entire row of shops will be filled with sales and activities, including a DJ, snack trucks, and more! The only way to know for sure who's doing what is to come down and see for yourself!
