We had a whirlwind weekend finally meeting the author of Grandmother Thorn, Katey Howes, and celebrating the release with her and illustrator Rebecca Hahn. The weekend started Friday when we all met at the Portland Japanese Garden, fitting for the setting of this beautiful book! We followed that up with two packed events at Powell's and Green Bean Books on Saturday and Sunday.
If you haven't seen Grandmother Thorn, request it from your library, shop at your local independent bookstore, or buy it online!
And enjoy these photos from a memorable weekend.
