We like to think of Bear Pond Books as the center of everything, Linda Urban has a new book called The Center of Everything, and we're bringing the two together April 6th at 11:00 am in the Children's Room upstairs at Bear Pond.
The Center of Everything follows A Crooked Kind of Perfect, Hound Dog True, and the picture book Mouse Was Mad.
Linda's new book features 12 year old Ruby Pepperdine at the great Bunning Day Parade, where she is going to be the Bunning Day Essay girl. And (here we're going to get a bit nerdy) it does great things with using different tenses and perspectives as the parade passes through. Playing with these elements was one of the writers' tools that Linda spoke about on her last visit to Bear Pond Books, last fall. We're looking forward to hearing about more next Saturday!
Where did Linda start creating the stories that would become her books? At a local bookstore, of course. Not our local bookstore, but close enough. Read about bookstores and more about The Center of Everything in this Publisher's Weekly interview.
Then, join us, with doughnuts, book discounts, and Linda Urban on Saturday, April 6th at 11:00 am.
