Boston-area folks: Come to my first book event!

I’m headed back to Dedham, Massachusetts for my first book signing on Saturday June 16th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

Event Details

What: 

  • My first book signing! It’s for What’s That, Mom?: How to use public art to engage your children with the world around them… without being an artist yourself.
  • The debut of my new public art journal, What’s That, Mom?: Field Notes from Your Encounters with Public Art out in the Wild. 

Where:
Mother Brook Art Center’s 5th Anniversary Festival
Mother Brook Arts & Community Center
123 High Street, Dedham, MA 02026

When:
Saturday, June 16th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. (I’ll be there all day.)

My Hosts:
The Blue Bunny Bookstore (Dedham, MA)

Rain or shine:
If it’s sunny, we will be on the lawn.
If it rains, come look for us inside. 

Festival Highlights

As of this writing, other events of the festival will include:

  • The return of two of the original Dedham bunnies from the 2012 Public Art Project
  • A visit by best-selling children’s book author and illustrator Peter Reynolds (author of The Dot), who will be painting another bunny on site
  • The results of the community-wide competition to design and paint a brand new bunny
  • The latest news on the GuitArts public art project happening in Norwood, MA this summer to raise money for Norwood music programs

And of course, I’ll have a little something to keep the kiddos entertained while you and I catch up.

Hope to see you there!

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
