Sharon Mentyka's book launch

 Join local author Sharon Mentyka and illustrator Stephen Schlott on Friday, March 13, 7–9pm  at Secret Garden Books, in Ballard for the book party and launch for B IN THE WORLD, a chapter book for kids ages 5 and up and the people who love them, that takes an open-hearted, kids-eyed view of what it means to be “different” and celebrates children for who they are meant to be, not how others want to label them. 
B IN THE WORLD tells the story of B, who "wasn’t really sure why one day he felt like wearing overalls and a flannel shirt, and the next day woke up wishing he could dress like his sister Patti-Anne.” The book is intended for both children and families who may have personal experience with gender non-conforming children but is also appropriate for all families interested in teaching tolerance and broadening their understanding of gender diversity. Kids are welcome! There will be dress-up activities and cupcakes! More information is available at the book’s
