Little Shop is proud to be a part of IndiesUnite!, a consortium of independent booksellers working together to put on a series of hard hitting virtual events that challenge the status quo, question our current standards and leave no curiosity left unexplored. Our spring program, taking place during Children's Book Week on May 7th at 4pm on Zoom, is a celebration of the intersection of food, culture, and community, and our lineup is super impressive:
Kevin Maillard (Fry Bread)
Andrea Wang (Watercress)
Cheryl Chepulsova (Noodles, Please!)
Michael Genhart (May Your Life Be Deliciosa)
This event is free to attend and requires pre-registration at virtualbookevents.com/
