Upcoming Events: North Fork or Bust!


If you’re feeling like a road trip and want to visit one of the friendliest and most beautiful places in the world, you need to stop by the North Fork of Long Island.

This coming week I have two book signings in Greenport, New York.

On Tuesday, August 4th at 10:00 am, I will be at the Floyd Memorial Library, 539 First Street.


And on Saturday, August 8th at 11:00 am, I will be at Burton’s Bookstore, 43 Front Street. No visit to the North Fork is complete without a visit to Burton’s Bookstore. It’s a neighborhood gem!



Missing Food Investigators, Captain Griswold and Detective Wilcox, are on the hunt for Miss Rabbit’s missing carrot cake and they need your help! A scavenger hunt, badge making, mug shots, prizes, carrot cake,** and more await the newest Missing Food Investigators.


Baker and Quality Control Inspector


Frosted and good to go! 

So, please stop by Floyd Memorial Library and Burton’s Bookstore for story time, food, and fun. Hope to see you there!

**Assuming the baker and quality control inspector doesn’t eat it all of the carrot cake!
