The First Annual Shoe-La-La Fashion show!

 On Sunday, April 17th, Books Inc. Burlingame hosted the first ever Shoe-La-La shoe fashion show with illustrator LeUyen Pham! Tots were invited to decorate their shoes and walk the pink carpet in honor of the new book, Shoe-La-La. Adorable! If you somehow missed this fantastic event, don't worry-- you can still meet LeUyen at Books Inc. Chestnut Street on May 7th, along with Lisa Brown and Alexandra Boiger for the 3 Rockstar Mamas in honor of Mama's Day event!

Children's Graphic Novel Panel @ Wondercon

Okay, so this panel happened about 2 weeks ago... but there's been so much exciting stuff happening at Books Inc for kids that I haven't had time to write it up until now! The panelists at this discussion included upcoming Oh My Gosh, Stories! guest Lisa Brown, American Born Chinese author Gene Yang, The Walking Dead and upcoming Super Dinosaur author Robert Kirkman, Newbery Honor medalist Jennifer Holm, and illustrator Lark Pien.

Room to Read fundraiser SUCCESS!

Thank you, to all our Books Inc. Chestnut Street customers!!! This Saturday you helped us raise over $800 for the fantastic non profit, Room To Read! That's enough money to send two deserving girls to school for a whole year (with all the uniforms and books they'll need) and to fund 300 local language books!
