Eight Cousins on V-Day

I'm celebrating Kids Heart Authors Day with five other authors at Eight Cousins, a landmark children's bookstore in Falmouth, Massachusetts founded by Betty Borg and Carol Borg Chittenden (pictured to the left).

The first and last sentences in their mission statement might help explain why I'm so excited to drive a couple of hours each way and spend half my Valentine's Day in this charming independent bookstore on the Cape:
Eight Cousins presents for sale a distinctive collection of quality children's books, chosen to offer culture, fun, beauty, insight and knowledge on many topics from the world over ... Our collection --- this unique grouping of books --- is the most important thing we have to offer. You can find books to buy anywhere, but this thorough and thoughtfully assembled group of books is one of a small handful in North America. We present it to you with pride.
Come and join us!
