We like Jacqui Robbins around here, the fine lady pictured at the left. She’s an 826michigan board member and former Volunteer of the Month who has led some of our very best workshops, hosted an Ides of March party, and volunteered at our in-school residency at Erickson Elementary in Ypsilanti every Friday this past school year. We are so excited then, to invite you to the release her second children’s book with a party at 826!
Join us next Tuesday, July 7, at 6pm here at 826michigan for the launch party for Two of A Kind. Jacqui will read her new book for children four to nine years old, and we’ll provide snacks, activities, and autographs! This event is free and open to everyone.
Published by Atheneum and illustrated by Matt Phelan, Two of a Kind tells the story of Anna, her best friend, and what happens when Anna must chose between playing with the “popular girls” or being true to her friend. It is a sweet, insightful story about the in-crowd, the outcasts, and the bravery it takes to be a real, true friend.
