For anyone who will be in or around Southeastern Massachusetts tomorrow, stop by Baker Books in Dartmouth, MA around 2 pm for the Seaside Dream book launch and a signing with Janet Costa Bates!
Seaside Dream, which won a Lee & Low New Voices Award honor, is the tender story of a girl and her grandmother in a tight-knit Cape Verdean-American family. Kirkus Reviews has called it “a moving portrayal of a grandparent-grandchild relationship as well as a distinctive take on universal aspects of immigration.”
It’s always exciting to help an author welcome her first book into the world, so if you’re in the area, we hope you’ll stop by! And a very happy birthday to Baker Books, which is hosting Janet’s signing as part of their 21st Birthday Celebration.
