Highlands Ranch: Annie Barrows, author of the wonderful Ivy & Bean books for young readers, will read from and sign her ninth book in the series Ivy & Bean Make the Rules (Chronicle). Bean’s older sister, Nancy, is going to Girl Power 4-Ever Camp, where she will do Crafts and Music and First Aid and other secret things that Bean will never know about because girls have to be eleven to go to Girl Power 4-Ever Camp. Bean doesn’t care. She doesn’t want to go to camp. She wouldn’t go even if they begged her. So ha. So ha ha. So—wait a second! Bean and Ivy can make their own camp, their own better camp: Camp Flaming Arrow, where counselors Ivy and Bean will give a whole new meaning to Crafts, Music, First Aid, and hands-on learning!

Colfax Avenue: Historian, song-writer and author Josh Garrett-Davis will play acoustic guitar and discuss and sign his debut book Ghost Dances: Proving Up on the Great Plains (Little, Brown). Growing up in South Dakota, Josh Garrett-Davis always knew he would leave. But as a young adult, he kept going back—in dreams and reality and by way of books. With this beautifully written narrative about a seemingly empty but actually rich and complex place, he has reclaimed his childhood, his unusual family, and the Great Plains. Inspiring and fascinating, Ghost Dances is a fluid combination of memoir and history and reportage that reminds us our roots matter. Can’t make it to the signing?
