Is this really finally happening after all these years?) Spreading the word on the power of community: THE FOREVER TREE: The story of one special tree and the community that brought it back to life The book tour is starting! First up with @DonnaCP2/8: @andersonsbookshop Naperville- 7pm 2/22: The Book Cellar, Chicago- 10 am feb : (date coming) @barnesandnoble Webster, Chi-11:30 (launch event)school & store visit times & dates coming The one that personally means the most is the one we can’t invite anyone to. (Charlie asked If I would please come read to her little classroom of 7 year olds). I hope that she’ll remember this little visit (and book) a dozen years from now when she’s off to college. I hope that it plants a little seed of confidence in her– that reading her the story about her (on the power of kindness, compassion, community & inclusiveness) teaches her that she can grow up to be anything she dreams of. And that when we’re packing her up for new dorm- we won’t need women’s marches, #metoo or hammers for glass ceilings anymore. And hoping that her future has a female president at the helm
