Where the Mountain Meets the Moon: The Launch Party

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
by


Yesterday, Grace had a wonderful—and well-attended—launch party for her new book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lots of parents came with their children—as did most of the Blue Rose Girls: Alvina, Libby, Anna, Meghan, and me.

After we Blue Rose Girls left the bookstore, we headed off to The Upstairs on the Square to celebrate the launch of Grace’s new book—and her birthday (although a bit belatedly.) It was great being with my blogging buddies to share in Grace’s success and to dine on delicious food!

The official release date for Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is July 1st. You'll want to get yourself a copy. Not only is Grace's new book a wonderful story--the full color illustrations are gorgeous! Booklist rates it as one of the Top 10 SF/Fantasy Books for Youth (5/15/09 issue).

Thanks so much for posting all these great photos. Wonderful to see all the Blue Rose Girls together. Loved WTMMTM; can't wait for July 1st to see the full color illustrations.

Jama,

It was such fun celebrating Grace's success with the other BRG. There were lots of people at the book launch party. It started at five o'clock. Grace didn't finish signing books until a little before eight!

What great photos! What a beautiful necklace Anna is wearing! What great frames Libby has! What a great-looking book that I wanna read.

Thanks for sharing.

I tried to get to the book launch but couldn't swing it with all the weekend activities. I can't wait to read this book.
