We really enjoyed Saturday Morning Story Time, and are excited to be resuming it. We're starting 2019 with a bang, with local bestselling author Brian Lies. Brian put out two books this past year, The Rough Patch, and Got to Get to Bear's. Both earned critical acclaim, with four starred reviews between them. They are the latest in an extensive catalog of books that Brian has written and/or illustrated, a catalog that includes the popular Bats series: Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Ballgame, Bats at the Library and Bats in the Band.

One of the reasons it's great to be having Brian out as our first Saturday Morning Story Time guest of the year is that he was actually one of the very first authors to visit the store, back when we first opened. He signed a poster for us that we've really enjoyed featuring in our children's area.

In the weeks to come, we have some equally impressive guests as well. Here's our February schedule:
  • Feb. 2: The Writer's Loft
  • Feb. 9: Luke Reynolds & Jeff Mack
  • Feb. 16: Alison Goldberg
  • Feb. 23: Carol Gordon Ekster
The Writer's Loft is a local community dedicated to helping writers achieve greatness. They recently published their first poetry collective, An Assortment of Animals.

The following weekend, we welcome Acton native Luke Reynolds back to town for a reading of his new board book, If My Love Were a Fire Truck, and he'll be joined by the book's illustrator, Jeff Mack.

On the 16th, we'll welcome back local author Alison Goldberg. Alison's book, I Love You for Miles and Miles, was recently released as a board book. It's so adorable, and now it comes in a tidy package too!

At the tail end of vacation, we'll welcome Carol Gordon Ekster, who will be reading two books about gratitude, which after school vacation, will likely be just what the doctor ordered.

Saturday mornings are getting to be our favorite time of the week, and not just because it's the one point in the week when we're the furthest away from having to go back to work! We hope you'll join us each Saturday morning for story time fun!
