Here’s a bit of good news on a rainy day: our friends at the Missouri Valley Family YMCA are opening their doors to children’s book author Ann Krzmarzick so she can still read, sign and sell Every Pumpkin Is Perfect today!
Ann will be set up and ready to meet you from 1-5 pm today at the Y. Many thanks to YMCA Executive Director Bill Bauman for his openness to some creative problem solving in the 11th hour.
Ann will be located in the main lobby of the Y. Her book, Every Pumpkin Is Perfect, was inspired by a visit to Papa’s Pumpkin Patch nearly 10 years ago. The story is focused on a class field trip to Papa’s where one little girl discovers every pumpkin is perfect, just like every person is perfect.
Every Pumpkin Is Perfect is available for $20. You can order books, t-shirts, stickers and removable tattoos at www.EveryPumpkinIsPerfect.com. Ann plans to read, sign and sell books at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch on Sunday, Sept. 15 (assuming the rain stops and we can be open).
If your schedule allows, I hope you’ll stop by the YMCA today from 1-5 pm and meet Ann. She is a wonderful woman who has beautifully captured the magic we love to share with our guests at Papa’s!
Take good care,
