Authors Laya Steinberg (THESAURUS REX) and Karen Day (TALL TALES) celebrate the publication of Karen's NO CREAM PUFFS at Wellesley Booksmith
Karen Day successfully launched her newest book, NO CREAM PUFFS (Wendy Lamb Books), at Wellesley Booksmith last Sunday, even though we discovered hours before the party that most of the town's roads would be closed thanks to a parade and (free) Beach Boys' concert.
Undaunted, friends and fans made it to the store and packed into the cellar to hear Karen's witty, articulate presentation, chomp on cookies, and leave with signed copies in hand along with the author's gift of mood rings (the book is set in 1980).
Here's an excerpt of the fabulous review NO CREAM PUFFS got from Kirkus:
... Coming-of-age themes emerge naturally at home and on the field ... (Madison's) feelings and choices ring true as do her teammates’ complex reactions. Since controversy still surrounds girls playing football, this fine sports story is fresh and relevant. (Fiction. 10-14)Congratulations, Karen!
