Thank You for Thinking Local First!

Saturday, February 16th at 2pm - Children's Book Signing with Diane Lash Decker, MS - Sam Finds the Sugar Gram

Sam Finds the Sugar Gram is a testament to Diane Lash Decker’s ongoing commitment to teach and empower children (and adults) about sweet food/drink choices. In the book, the unfamiliar sugar “gram” measurement is finally decoded using a treasure-hunt approach for uncovering the simple idea that four grams of sugar are the same as one teaspoon of sugar.

Think you know your sugar grams? During the signing, Diane Decker will have a display of various foods out for you to test your knowledge. Stop in, get a signed book, and see how your taste buds measure up!

Highly readable and fascinating slices of American History. Using a then and now format, Ellis traces the origin of certain issues from the country's founding to the present. Ellis emphasizes that dialogue over any issue is our nation's great strength, even if it's uncomfortable. Highly recommend for history lovers and neophytes. -Tom
