Blue Marble Books celebrates 37 years
Blue Marble Books is 37 years old, and we are celebrating in grand style with great events!
Join us for a book signing by outdoor recreation expert and award-winning author Jeff Alt on Saturday, June 11, 2016, 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. Alt will put on an interactive adventure show and sign copies of his new book The Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Traveling Through the Great Smoky Mountains [Beaufort Books, $9.99 pb]. Through storytelling and audience participation, readers will adventure along with Tommy “Bubba Jones” and his sister Jenny “Hug-a-Bug” as they learn more about the Great Smoky Mountain National Park than they ever thought they would when their Papa Lewis lets them in on a family secret: The family has legendary time traveling skills! With these abilities, Bubba Jones and Hug-a-Bug travel back in time and meet the park’s founders, its earliest settlers, native Cherokee Indians, wild animals, extinct creatures and learn what the park was like millions of years ago. Explore the Smokies with Bubba Jones and family in a whole new way.
Also, we will have a Sidewalk Chalk Drawing Contest & Sale on Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. Join us and special guest illustrator Christina Wald as we celebrate our 37th anniversary and commemorate the beginning of summer with a sidewalk chalk drawing contest and sidewalk sale on select books! We’ll use the blank sidewalk canvas in front of Blue Marble Books to draw favorite book scenes and characters. We will provide some chalk, but we encourage you to bring some, too. Anyone is welcome to try their hand at the sidewalk chalk drawing contest, but parents and/or guardians must be present with kids while drawing.
If customers cannot attend the book signings, but would like a book signed, they can call (859) 781-0602 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also requesting that customers call or email the store to reserve their chalk drawing spot as there is limited space available.
