Pete and Debbie

Release Party at the Reading Reptile

15, 10

Over the years, I have purchased thousands of children’s books, many of those from Pete Cowdin and Debbie Pettid, co-owners of Reading Reptile in Brookside, Missouri.

My publisher tells me that this is the best-selling independent children’s bookstore in the nation. I happen to be lucky enough to have it in my home town. I happen to be luckier still that Pete and Debbie have graciously offered to host a release party for THE LITTLE PIANO GIRL, the book I co-authored with my sister, Maryann Macdonald. The release party will be on Saturday, February 13th from 6-8 PM.

I would love to see friends, family, fellow writers and readers, word nerds, jazz hounds, teachers, librarians, people of all shapes and sizes at this event. The only requirement is that all people in attendance be over the age of 21 as wine will be served. Oops! One more requirement. Please don’t bring in any books to be signed. The Reading Reptile will have plenty on hand if you have interest.

The eminently talented Mark Lowrey will play. That in itself is reason to attend. Hope to see you there!
