Jump into Fall with your friends at Red Balloon Bookshop along with local author Molly Beth Griffin and illustrator Meleck Davis as we celebrate the release of their seasonal picture book, The Big Leaf Leap!
A young girl wants a leaf pile to leap in. A big leaf pile, a huge leaf pile, an enormously enormous leaf pile! But no matter how much she rakes, there are not enough leaves in her yard to make the leaf pile of her dreams. She will need some help. The Big Leaf Leap is the perfect way to usher in the Fall, so join us for a parking lot party on Saturday morning! Molly Beth Griffin and Meleck Davis will read aloud from the book, guide friends through fun autumnal activities, and take time for questions. Following the event, Molly and Meleck will sign copies of the book and guests are welcome to themed takeaway items and treats.
In the event of unsavory weather, we'll move indoors. Check back on the website and our socials for weather updates.
To Attend: All are welcome to join, but please RSVP using the buttons below to help us ensure you have a chair. You can register for a ticket through September 10, 8:30am, and pre-order a book below. Additional books will be available for purchase the day of the event. If the event moves indoors, we ask that guests wear masks, but they are not required outdoors. We have disposable masks on hand if you would like one and find yourself without.
Signing Guidelines: Following the happenings, Molly and Meleck will sign and personalize copies of the book. If you would prefer not to stay for the signing portion, Red Balloon is happy to have your books signed and personalized for you and will contact you when they're ready to be picked up. Please include any personalization requests in the order comments of your purchase.
Red Balloon Bookshop is excited to co-host this event with Minnesota Historical Society Press.
