Celebrate Earth! A Virtual Picture Book Party

Event date: 
Tuesday, April 25, 2023 - 6:30pm

Extend Earth Day to an Earth Week this April by joining authors and illustrators from near and far for a virtual celebration of the planet we call home!

Tune in as we chat with these creatives about their new picture books, all united by nature themes! Red Balloon will ask the audience relevant, nature-related questions, and announce giveaways to a handful of lucky attendees! Giveaways include personalized copies of the discussed books (one book per winner) as well as a 30-minute zoom chat. The discussion will be followed by audience Q&A.

To Attend: Use the link below to register for the event. Pre-registration is required! You can register for the event for free or donate to help us keep events happening. Order copies of the books below, and note that shipping is free for purchases of $50 or more! Registration ends at 5:00pm CT on April 25. All registered attendees will be sent the link to join the party 48 hours before the event and on the evening of the event, after ticket sales have ended.

Pictured from left to right, meet our the featured party guests and their books!
