We are looking forward to the new year. We are excited that most of our local authors have new books being released this year. Please ckeck-in often and we will update you on future book signings
Author Event: Liza Gardner Walsh
Join us for a book signing with Liza Gardner Walsh, author and illustrator of several children’s books. Her newest book Fairy Houses All Year will be available for purchase and signing.
A beautiful tool for parents, grandparents, teachers and others who want to encourage kids to get off the couch and out into nature all year round – written in an always engaging, never condescending style that can be enjoyed by grownups and school-age kids alike.
Fairy Houses All Year celebrates the year-round pleasures of fairy house building. Through the use of seasonal materials, kids and families can engage in this natural and creative endeavor no matter the weather. For example, fall fairy houses feature vibrant colored leaves, pumpkins, and late blooming flowers. Winter fairy houses are built using snow, ice, old birds’ nests, or the dried husks of milkweed and seed pods. In spring, fairy houses become abundant with early blooms, bare branches, and lots of mud! Summer fairy houses are perhaps the most decorative because choices for the summer fairy house are boundless. Filled with color photos, snippets of fairy lore, helpful advice and instructions, and lots of information about nature, Fairy Houses All Year is the ideal handbook for crafting fairy homes no matter the season.
Author, Liza Gardner Walsh, has worked as a pre-school teacher, children’s librarian, high-school English teacher, writing tutor, museum educator, and she holds an MFA in writing from Vermont College. She lives with her family in Camden, Maine.

Malia Dell, first time author and health advocate, from Maine, recently released her cookbook, Food That Works: Real Meals to Survive the 9 to 5. With the idea for this book in her heart, Malia left her corporate job in Boston to live in Spain and Turkey to research how other cultures managed their diets. In 2012, Malia washed up on the shores of Rockland, Maine, to write this book. For the past three years she has been living in the South End of Rockland, devoutly writing, testing, illustrating, photographing, and perfecting this food system. Malia is a certified wellness coach, a fitness instructor, and an advocate for ending food waste. Malia is now booking engaging wellness workshops at universities and offices across the country to spread the word of Food That Works and healthful eating.
Food That Works is a cookbook for busy people who want access to quick homemade meals Monday through Friday. It offers five great weekly menus to choose from, all paired with shopping lists, prep instructions, and realistic recipes for the week.

You will turn your fridge into the ultimate grab-n-go, stocked with nutritious whole foods ready to assemble on the fly. The recipes are designed to recreate the meals you love, fast, with minimal clean up, utilizing crossover ingredients so there is no waste.
