"Roxie's Fairy Adventure at The Peabody" Comes to The Woman's Exchange This Thursday--- I'll be signing books from 11 to 2--Come For the Scrumptious Lunch, Stay for the Signing!

The Woman's Exchange, at 88 Racine Street, is always a magical place.   Their shop, filled with fabulous hand-crafted items created by local artists, is famous for its outstanding selection of gifts for all ages.  And their award-winning tea room is known far and wide for the delicious lunch it serves up in a cozy, welcoming atmosphere unlike anything else in the city. But I like to think this Thursday, December 7th, will be even more special--because Roxie and I will both be there!  (I'll be signing books, she'll be be checking out the mind-boggling array of gifts. She'll also, no doubt, be sneaking a peak at the treats coming out of the kitchen, and, of course, trying hard NOT to be seen by humans!)

 

"Roxie's Fairy Adventure at The Peabody" is the story of a little river fairy with a big dream--and the  "can do" attitude to make it happen.  She dreams of exploring the South's grand hotel, The Peabody.  But fairies are NOT allowed to be seen by humans, so she enlists the help of five very special friends, the Peabody ducks. Together they work to make her dream come true.
 

I can't wait to meet you --and introduce you to Roxie--Thursday, December 7th from 11 to 2 at one of Memphis’ oldest and finest centers of hospitality, the Woman's Exchange!

"Fairy Fun Kick-Off" Peabody Hotel Book Signing Recap

Did we find Roxie?

  As we say in the South, “I’m a day late and a dollar short”, but I do want to let you know The Fairy Fun Roxie Kickoff October 7th at The Peabody was a rousing success…so much so that I’ve been filling Roxie orders, and planning TV appearances, book signings and school readings ever since!  Whew!  It’s good to be busy. But I do want to say a special thank you to all of you who attended and made the day so memorable—with special thanks to Roxie illustrator Morgan Spicer, who came all the way from New Jersey just to meet you all and sign books!      The Peabody lobby slowly filled with fairy wings as young Roxie fans happily chose their fairy wing color preferences.  Afterwards, they clutched  their signed books, fairy stickers and coloring sheets,  and settled in to intently watch the duck march, looking extra carefully to see if they could get a glimpse of Roxie.       Thanks so much to the wonderful staff at Lansky Lucky Duck Gifts for their expertise, promotion and many kindnesses in putting together this event.  Thanks to Kelly Earnest, Peabody Marketing Director, for allowing us have this fun gathering in The Peabody’s beautiful lobby and for making Morgan’s stay at The Peabody so memorable.     I’m so happy that Roxie has touched a chord in the hearts of so many!  It may be because she’s a good example for young girls.  Instead of relying solely on fairy dust, she's a fairy who knows what she wants, makes a plan and puts together a team to make it happen!
