Girls Read Tour
Fri, March 24, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
Blue Marble Books is delighted to announce that we will be the first stop on the Girls Read Tourfeaturing children’s book authors Debbie Dadey, Gail Nall, and Stephanie Faris.
The Girls Read Tour authors will stop at various bookstores and libraries beginning in Kentucky and Tennessee, and in a Facebook post announcing the tour, Dadey said, “Excited to announce the beginning of the Girls Read Tour! It will be coming to Kentucky and Tennessee in 2017. Stephanie Faris Berry, Gail Chooljian Nall, and I will be starting the tour on March 24th at the Blue Marble Books.”
Dadey says of the importance of continued literacy work for girls, “Writers are often told to focus on boys because often boys won't read books about girls, but girls will read books about boys. Sometimes girls need to shine too!”
Dadey is also providing an additional incentive to come check out the tour. The school with the most students in attendance in Kentucky will win a school visit from her.
Debbie Dadey has written and co-written over 160 books, including The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids and the Mermaid Tales series. Gail Nall has written and co-written numerous middle grade and YA books such as Out of Tune and Exit Stage Left. Stephanie Faris has written numerous books such as the Piper Morgan series and books for tweens such as Best. Night. Ever. and 30 Days of No Gossip.
