Rachel Vail Book Signing
Children's author Rachel Vail will be in the store signing copies of her new picture book "Sometimes I Grumblesquinch".
Rachel never intended to become a writer. As a teenager she believed her only skill was eavesdropping, and therefore she planned to become a spy. But as a freshman at Georgetown University, Vail realized that her skill could be put to use. By writing down conversations she overheard, the stories in her head evolved into plays, and eventually into novels. Rachel is the author of many beloved picture books and novels, including "Righty and Lefty", "Jibberwillies at Night", the "Mama Rex & T" series, "Lucky", "You, Maybe", and the "Elizabeth" series. Rachel loves talking with kids -- hearing their stories and reactions, discussing their hopes and their worries. She get many of her ideas from the letters she receives. Rachel lives in New York City with her husband and her two sons.
Rachel's newest book, "Sometimes I Grumblesquinch" is a sweet and touching exploration of the scariness of BIG feelings and overcoming the pressures to do everything "just right". This is a companion title to bestselling picture book "Sometimes I'm Bombaloo".
This event is free and open to the public, especially our younger customers! If you are unable to attend the event you can reserve your copy of the book by calling the store on (860) 868 0525.
