Please join author Frank Murphy, store owner Kathy Tholey Morrison, and fellow authors and illustrators at the Newtown Bookshop on Monday, November 12, for an evening of book talk and networking. Frank will speak to attendees about writing nonfiction for children. Then Kathy and Frank will discuss the dynamics of a healthy author/independent bookseller relationship. This free event is open to SCBWI members and nonmembers. Together we’ll celebrate Love Your Bookstore Week, and attendees can take the Love Your Bookstore Challenge.
Frank Murphy is the author of fun historical fiction/biography books for children, including five leveled readers published by Random House in the popular Step into Reading series. In July 2019, Sleeping Bear Press will publish A Boy Like You written by Frank Murphy, illustrated by Kayla Harren.
Here’s what Frank has to say about The Newtown Bookshop:
“I love The Newtown Bookshop. It’s nestled in a row of stores in a strip mall in Newtown, PA. It doesn’t matter who is working there when I walk in—each person is friendly and so ready to talk books. Kathy Morrison, the owner, is really supportive of local authors, and her knowledge and love for children’s books make her that much more of a true book aficionado. From the window displays as you approach and the literary knickknacks they feature as you walk into the shop, to your journey to the back of the shop where the large children’s book section rests, you will always find a new book you didn’t know existed. The Newtown Bookshop is nestled right in the corner of my heart!”
I hope you’ll join us for this free event! Here are the details:
