Event description

Description

*Tickets to the presentation portion of this event are SOLD OUT, but we have worked with publisher to open up a block of PHOTO LINE ONLY tickets to allow more kids to meet Raina! This ticket will get your group into the Photo Line after Raina's presentation. It does NOT come with a seat at the presentation. Please claim ONE Photo Line Only ticket for your group. In order to give as many kids as possible a chance to meet Raina, we are limiting groups to ONE photo, which can either be with your whole group or with an individual child. Raina is not doing a signing line for this tour (just photos) but read below to learn more about getting a signed bookplate for GUTS!*


On The Same Page is a community reading initiative designed to get as many people as possible reading the same book each fall. This year, our OTSP selection is SMILE by Raina Telgemeier, and we couldn't possibly be more thrilled to welcome her to Decatur to celebrate On The Same Page AND the release of her newest graphic novel, GUTS! Learn more about these two amazing books below. This grande finale event will be hosted in conjunction with the Georgia Center for the Book at Holy Trinity Parish Episcopal Church, located just a few blocks away from Little Shop of Stories. The event will consist of a presentation by Raina followed by a photo meet-and-greet line. In lieu of a book signing, Raina will pre-sign bookplates for copies of GUTS purchased from Little Shop of Stories (either at the event or at the store previously, so keep your receipt).

IMPORTANT DETAILS:

A seat at this event is FREE, but a ticket is required for entry. We are allowing a maximum of 4 tickets claimed per person. After the presentation there will be an optional photo line to meet Raina. She will NOT sign books or any other memorabilia. If you purchase GUTS at the event or from Little Shop of Stories beforehand (save your receipt), you will be in the first wave of attendees to get into the photo line! But everyone with a ticket will have an opportunity to get a photo.


More about SMILE:

Raina Telgemeier's #1 New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir based on her childhood!

Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.


More about GUTS:

Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it's probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns to school, where she's dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends, not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina's tummy trouble isn't going away... and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What's going on?

Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face -- and conquer -- her fears.
