Jennifer Fosberry, Author of "Isabella: Girl on the Go" at Linden Tree March 15!
Isabella's back, her dreams are turning an ordinary backyard into an exciting adventure, and the author will be at Linden Tree for a book signing on Thursday, March 15th! (Time TBD.)
Jennifer Fosberry has created an inspiring follow-up to her New York Times bestselling series featuring everyone's favorite purple-haired little girl, Isabella.
Isabella spends the day pretending everyday things (like the sandbox) are extraordinary places (like the desert and pyramids of Egypt). A back of the book "Places that Changed the World" section features descriptions of all the places Isabella visits.
As always, we can order any book in print on your behalf and our booksellers can make recommendations for you and for readers of all ages. Also, be sure to check out our extensive young adult section in the back of the store next to the reading area!
African Folk Tales March 17th at 11 a.m.
To promote the 13th Annual Run for Zimbabwe Orphans and Fair, Ellen L. Clark will be at Linden Tree on Saturday, March 17th at 11 a.m. to perform a favorite folk tale, "The Hummingbird and the Fire."
She will supplement the storytelling with puppets, do an inter-active geography game, and show off a baobab tree & other items from Zimbabwe.

Video Shoot on Location at Linden Tree!
Alicanto, a local start-up company offering full-service marketing options to small- and mid-sized businesses, chose Linden Tree as the location for filming an ad this week about how to help small businesses succeed.
Thanks for your patience if you came by the store on Monday during one of the "all quiet on the set" times, and especially if you agreed to go on film as some of our employees and customers did. We'll post a link to the video when it's finished. Look closely at the extras, you may see some familiar faces!
Thanks for thinking of us, Alicanto! We wish you success and can't wait to see how the store looks on the big screen!
