Mark your calendars for a delightful celebration of motherhood and the special bond between children and their beloved grown-ups! On Sunday, May 5th, from 9 -10 am, Ivy Bookshop is hosting a heartwarming event that promises to be a cherished memory for all. Renowned children's author Tracy Gold will lead a captivating paper star craft session, allowing little hands to create beautiful keepsakes that can be gifted to their mothers or treasured for themselves. This event coincides with the release of Gold's highly anticipated new picture book, "Call Your Mother," a heartwarming tale that celebrates the unbreakable connection between children and their mothers. Attendees will have the opportunity to pre-order this enchanting book, making it the perfect Mother's Day gift. Beyond the craft and book, this event offers a chance for families to come together, share laughter, and create lasting memories. Tracy Gold's literary works are a testament to her love for families and nature, weaving tales that resonate with readers of all ages. With a Master's degree in Creative Writing and Publishing Arts from the University of Baltimore and a Bachelor's degree in English from Duke University, Gold's writing is a harmonious blend of expertise and heart. Her published and forthcoming picture books, including "Everyone's Sleepy but the Baby," "Trick or Treat, Bugs to Eat," and "Hide and Seek, Nuts to Eat," have captivated audiences with their whimsical narratives and relatable themes. But Gold's talents extend beyond the written word – she is also a dedicated animal lover, with a particular affinity for horses and dogs. Over the years, she has played a vital role in training rescued horses and retired racehorses, helping them transition into new careers and find loving homes. This passion for animals adds an extra layer of warmth and compassion to her storytelling, making her works truly special.
