Boswell Book Company, a mainstay in Milwaukee for book lovers, which in addition to selling an eye-popping array of books in good ol’ hard copy format, supports writers in a variety of ways. One is to offer its store at 2559 North Downer Avenue as a venue for authors to do new-book launches, presentations and readings about their books. Another is to publish a newsletter announcing those events. Now BBC has published its first newsletter for kids.
Among the featured authors making appearances in the coming weeks are writer-illustrator and transplant to Milwaukee Andy Rash, who on Friday, Oct. 2, will be introducing his new picture book, Archie the Daredevil Penguin. and Liza Wiemer, who is launching her YA debut novel Hello.
Here is BBC’s announcement for both in its newsletter for kids:
Penguin Power with Andy Rash, Friday, October 2, 7 pm, at Boswell.
Boswell Book Company is proud to host local author Liza Wiemer’s launch of her debut young-adult novel, Hello?, the story of five Wisconsin teens’ stories woven into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope, perfect for ages 14 and up. Liza Wiemer will donate a copy of Hello? to a local school for every 10 copies purchased at Boswell.
Wiemer has been championing teen fiction since we opened 2357 days ago. Now it’s her turn to share the voices of five Wisconsin teens’ stories, weaving a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serenity, and ultimately hope. Celebrate Hello? on Wednesday, October 28, 7 pm, at Boswell.
Among other events to be held at both Boswell’s Downer Avenue store and area libraries, the newsletter includes recommended reading for preteens and teenagers, information about its monthly story time for kids and a special presentation for teachers.
