Bellingham visit

I spent the day yesterday in Bellingham, Washington with fellow author, Katherine Pryor. She has a new picture book out, Zora’s Zucchini which is the perfect read for the end of summer. It’s about what to do with all those zucchinis your garden keeps yielding, but you are tired of eating.

Sponsored by Village Books, we had wonderful day. We had two fun assemblies with the fantastic students of Birchwood Elementary School followed by a tour of their impressive school garden run by Common Threads Farm. In the afternoon, Kathy read at the farmer’s market located out the back door of Village Books and then we both participated in a panel discussion about food literacy with local food experts.

There’s a lot of amazing work going on with local food and food literacy in Whatcom County!
