MAGNOLIA ART WALK January  25th!   Please join us to celebrate TWO new releases from our local author (and bookseller!) Kathryn Dennis.

Just released:  Snakes on the Job.  These busy snakes are back!  This time, they’re operating a variety of construction vehicles–bulldozers, diggers, backhoes and more; and what they’re building is a surprise.  It’s so much fun, new friends want to join them!

AND, Snakes on a Train is now in board book format…perfect for all ages!

Story times at 4:30 and 5:30.  Create your own snake art from  4 to 6.

Stickers, snakes and more!








OCTOBER 26th:  Last Farmer’s Market of the regular season, and the Fall Art Walk, from 4 to 7.  Please join us and our two visiting author/illustrators.


Revered nature writer Brenda Peterson will sign her new children’s picture book, Catastrophe by the Sea, from 4 to 5 p.m.

She teamed up with award-winning illustrator Ed Young, Magnolia resident designer Alison Grevstad, and the Seattle Aquarium to create this vividly told and vibrantly illustrated compassionate children’s book about a mischievous cat that befriends a colony of lively creatures at the sea’s edge.  It’s an honor to have her here, and we hope you’ll come meet her and see this gorgeous book.

Molly Hashimoto, an artist, illustrator and author who has visited before to sign some of her earlier art and children’s books, will be here from 5 to 7, signing her beautiful new children’s board book, Molly Hashimoto’s Trees!, and discussing her work.

Molly is an amazing and gifted artist and art teacher, and we are lucky to have her as a part of the Art Walk.  Please come visit her and see her new book as well as her earlier books, a calendar and coloring book of her art, and a selection of her cards.







Celebrate the literary arts at the Magnolia Art Walk, Saturday, July 27, 4-7.  Come visit with author and local favorite Rachel Linden!

Rachel’s two previous books, Ascension of Larks and Becoming the Talbot Sisters, were received with much enthusiasm at our Art Walk event last year.  We’re very pleased that she’ll join us this time to sign and discuss her latest title—just released!

Sometimes a shattered dream leads to an amazing journey.  In a romantic adventure across the globe, The Enlightenment of Bees explores what it means to find our greatest passions and meet the world’s great need.




Another Farmer’s Market Author Event!  Saturday, July 13th, 10-2.

Please come meet author Pat Kittelson and let her introduce you to her two charming picture books:  Bixley Baines and The Little Sweaters, and Bixley Baines and the Beehive Fence.

The books feature Bixley Baines, a solitary knitter, who cares deeply for protecting earth’s beautiful creatures.  They use a whimsical story to highlight environmental issues based on real science.

Pat will be reading and signing her books throughout the hours of the Farmer’s Market.  Please stop by!




Perfect! Signing on June 1st, Farmer’s Market Opening Day!

Award-winning local author & illustrator Katherine Pryor will be here to read and sign her gorgeous new book, Bea’s Bees.

Beatrix discovers a wild bumblebee nest on her way home from school and finds herself drawn to their busy world. When her bees mysteriously disappear, Bea hatches a plan to bring them back. Can she inspire her school and community to save them? Some types of bees are in danger of disappearing forever, but ordinary people (and kids!) can help save them. Filled with fascinating facts about bumblebees and ideas to help preserve their environment, Bea’s Bees encourages kids to help protect bees and other pollinators.

What a wonderful book to help launch and celebrate the Magnolia Farmer’s Market and SUMMER!
