It’s Getting Cooler

23 Oct

FallIf you live in central AZ, you know the joy that comes over your whole being when the first signs of fall actually appear on your outdoor thermometer. (This picture was actually taken in Kansas…I love the fall colors.) I’m sure it is the same reaction that anyone in our northern states has when spring arrives.  I know that many states can have over 100 degree temperatures, but not for as many days in a row as we can have.

Unlike our northern neighbors, that tend to spend more time inside in the winter, we on the other hand, spend most of the summer inside.  With the onset of fall, everyone dusts off their bikes and hiking shoes with the vigor of a hungry bear after a long hibernation.

So like many of my fellow Arizonans, I have started filling up my calendar with as many events as possible to make up for lost time.  I am always open to suggestions as well, so if you know about a fun event in the Phoenix area, please share!

So far I have:

October 23rd- School Visit at Banner Academy in Tempe

October 23rd & 24th- Book Signing at Sydney’s Café & Market at Tempe Market Place

Friday from 4-7pm (Story time-5pm)

Saturday from 12-5pm (Story time-2pm)

November 14th- Gilbert Art Walk in Downtown Gilbert

9-1pm by Water Tower

November 20th-21st- Candy Cane Lane Craft Boutique & Holiday Market

First Baptist Tempe- 4525 S. Mc Clintock Dr. Tempe, AZ 85282

Friday from 4-8pm

Saturday from 9-3pm

December 5th– Red Mountain Library Children’s Book Event Mesa, AZ

1-4pm

January 16th-  Gilbert Art Walk in Downtown Gilbert

February 20th- Gilbert Art Walk in Downtown Gilbert

March 19th- Gilbert Art Walk in Downtown Gilbert

We cannot wait to share our books, and love for story telling at all of these events. I’m hoping we will be adding more events to this list soon.  If any of you can come to one of these activities, be sure to drop me a note so we can make sure to look for you.

Yeah, for cooler weather!
