Nan Forler: This morning, I did my first official reading at The Freckled Lion Bookstore in Georgetown. What an amazing store! Kate, the store’s owner, has created a warm and happy environment that celebrates kids and books. She and her employees are very knowledgeable about all the books in the store. They spent time with my own kids, listening to their likes and dislikes, to help them find the perfect book. The Freckled Lion is a magical place that resembles The Shop Around the Corner in the movie You’ve Got Mail. Kate even let me try on the Story Lady hat and pretend I was Meg Ryan in the movie!

And the reading? Great fun! Kate put me in a comfy chair, surrounded by lots of kids on cozy floor pillows. Afterwards, Kate handed out little flying birds to all the kids.

Favourite question “about the book”: “Have you ever seen a horse fly?”

My son’s comment from today: “I wish we lived in Georgetown so we could come to this bookstore all the time.”

Thanks Kate, Bobbi, and Kylie for your warm welcome and a delightful morning!
