I am very excited to announce our next author event here at GBE! On October 22nd, we will be hosting award-winning children’s author Julie Dinges for an author visit, including a reading from her book The Search for the Scepter, a scavenger hunt for the kids, and a book signing! Julie is a local Ohio-based author from Hilliard, and her book has won multiple awards for excellence in children’s literature.
The Search for the Scepter is a delightful fantasy picture book that will enchant kids (and kids-at-heart) of all ages. It tells the story of two princesses, Rosalie and Scarlet, who set out on a grand quest to retrieve their father’s stolen scepter. Their adventure takes them all over the kingdom, where they meet wonderful creatures and explore fabulous locations, all realized beautifully in gorgeous artwork on every page.
We are so excited to be hosting Julie for this event, and we will have copies of her book available for sale in the store, or you can bring your own copy and have it signed after the activity. We hope you will consider joining us at 11am on Saturday the 22nd at 4 Troy Road, Delaware Ohio. This is a great opportunity to meet a local author, provide a fun activity for your kids, and support our small local business. We’d love to see you there!
