The body dragged down the hallway. The urgent assignation in the janitor’s closet. The bitter argument in the pick-up truck. While plot and character tend to get most of the credit, setting carries much of a story’s weight. Exploring setting is a surprisingly effective way to develop emotional depth and tension. In this course we’ll make maps, dissect landscapes, and find clues to the heart of our narrative: loose floorboards; the odor of disinfectant; dandelions wilting on the dashboard. Eli Brown is the author of Cinnamon & Gunpowder.

Kathleen Weber - Della Fattoria Bread

Bread is one of the most fundamental parts of our diet, yet so many of us rely on bland grocery-store offerings when flavorsome breads can easily be made at home. Della Fattoria Bread: 63 Foolproof Recipes for Yeasted, Enriched, and Naturally Leavened Breads teaches readers to make the popular breads of this award-winning bakery. More than an instructional guide, the book takes the fear out of bread baking, and encourages bakers to draw on their senses, experiences, and instincts. The book is filled with invaluable bread-baking secrets, including starters and proper techniques, and features recipes for all levels of bakers.

Kathleen Weber co-founded Della Fattoria Cafe in 1996 with the building of their first wood-burning oven outside the kitchen door of the family ranch in Petaluma, California. What was thought of as a hobby for Kathleen blossomed over the next several years into a thriving artisanal bread business. Today, artisanal products of Della Fattoria reach clients in Sonoma, Napa, Marin and San Francisco counties including the San Francisco and Marin farmers markets.

Molly Idle - Flora and the Penguin

Part of our special Children's Book Day events! 

Having mastered ballet in Flora and the Flamingo, Flora takes to the ice and forms an unexpected friendship with a penguin in Flora and the Penguin. Twirling, leaping, spinning, and gliding, on skates and flippers, the duo mirror each other's graceful dance above and below the ice. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results. Artist Molly Idle creates an innovative, wordless picture book with clever flaps that reveal Flora and the penguin coming together, spiraling apart, and coming back together as only true friends do.

Molly Idle began her career as an artist working for DreamWorks Animation, and from there she leapt into the world of children's books. She lives in Tempe, Arizona.

 

Other authors visiting for Children's Book Day include Ian Lendler (The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth) and Shirin Bridges, Janie Havemeyer, and Gretchen Maurer (A Treasury of Glorious Goddesses Series)!
