Monthly Archives: April 2017

How can it be that the Three Storytelling Ladies have only one more signing event before Easter 2017 becomes just a memory?

No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you!  Sue, Jen and I will be signing books one final time for this Easter season on Saturday, April 15th (that’s the day before Easter) at the Market at Boyer’s Junction from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  I know, I know — 8 a.m.?!?  But there is a method to our madness.  You see, the Market has awesome breakfast food and coffee, so if we start early you can grab something yummy to nosh on and to sip while you wait in line to have your very own copy of The Easter Chicken signed — personalized even!  And from the response we’ve received to our latest book, there will be a line . . .

The Easter Chicken has really taken off (pun totally intended).  We have had to order additional books and are keeping our fingers crossed that they will arrive here in time for Saturday’s event.  So . . . if you absolutely MUST  have our book in order to complete your Easter basket(s), come early!  Sue, Jen, the Easter Chicken and I will be there to greet you!


Three Storytelling Ladies

Hello, peeps . . . The Easter Chicken here!

Do you know what today is?  That’s right — it’s Friday, April 7th!

And do you know what that means?  It means that there are only 8 — that’s right — 8 more shopping days until Easter!

Now do you want to hear the good news?  There is no need to panic!  You can still get your copies of The Easter Chicken for those all-important Easter baskets by coming to see illustrator Sue Oswald and author Mary Ann Hayes and of course me at the Moravian Bookshop in Bethlehem, PA between 1 and 3 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 8th. We will be reading and signing copies of The Easter Chicken just for you!  And we will be hanging out with our new best friend, the Easter Bunny!  Who could ask for anything more?

So don’t procrastinate!  Be a super bunny and get those baskets loaded!  Then next Saturday night when everyone else is running around like chickens with their heads cut off — ooh!  that’s not a very pretty picture — you’ll be sitting in your easy chair sipping your carrot juice martini while you read your very own copy of The Easter Chicken!

See you at Moravian!

Hello, dear readers,

We know it’s hard to believe, but it is true:  Easter is almost here!  So we have one question for all of you — are YOU ready?

Because we love our readers we’ve devised a simple checklist for you so that you won’t find yourself without the essentials when you fill those Easter baskets.  Why don’t you take a minute to check it right now?  Here we go:

1.  Easter basket(s)

2.  A copy of The Easter Chicken

3.  Dyed hard-boiled (very important to hard boil them!) eggs — 4 to 6 should do

4.  A copy of The Easter Chicken

5.  A large peanut butter or coconut egg with the recipient’s name on it

6.  A copy of The Easter Chicken

7.  A hollow chocolate bunny (large ears preferred)

8.  A copy of The Easter Chicken

9.  Hershey kisses wrapped in Easter pink and blue foil

10.  A copy of The Easter Chicken

11.  Jelly beans — lots of them because they’re small

Oh, and did we mention a copy of The Easter Chicken?

So now that you have your list, be a super bunny and get hoppin’ and get to shoppin’!

Sue, Jen and Mary Ann

P.S.  Since you’re such a good bunny, treat yourself to a large chocolate rabbit, too, and a copy of — wait for it — The Easter Chicken!
