MA – The Magician’s Hat Signing

Malcolm Mitchell, wide receiver for the New England Patriots, appears at An Unlikely Story on Sunday, February 25, 2018 from 1:30 – 4:00 PM to sign his new book THE MAGICIAN’S HAT! Get tickets at the link…

Press Release:

An Unlikely Story is throwing a huge party in celebration of the launch of Malcolm Mitchell’s new picture book, The Magician’s Hat! There will be magicians, an inspiring presentation by Malcolm, and some very special guests to congratulate Malcolm on his book launch! Malcolm will be reading his book, The Magician’s Hat, answering questions from kids, and signing his book.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks — books that make every kid’s dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library — a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon — poof! — each child comes away with something better than they could’ve imagined — a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can’t help but wonder, What’s really making the magic happen?

ABOUT READ WITH MALCOLM:
Read with Malcolm is a youth literacy initiative founded by former University of Georgia wide-receiver and current New England Patriots rookie, Malcolm Mitchell. The organization’s goals are twofold: 1) to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and 2) to improve literacy in schools with below grade-level reading skills. In 2015, Read with Malcolm launched Share the Magic Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, to promote the long-term benefits of being an active reader to students served by Title I schools and underserved communities. To help us continue to inspire young readers, please visit www.readwithmalcolm.com for more information about Malcolm’s youth literacy programs.

Author Tamora Pierce appears at Changing Hands Bookstore to present and sign new novel Tempests and Slaughter on Tuesday, March 6th at 7:00 PM.

Arram Draper is on the path to becoming one of the realm’s most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a Gift with unlimited potential for greatness–and for attracting trouble. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the “leftover prince” with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram realizes that one day –soon–he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

They are—remarkably—very much the same, with minor variations.

Sara Levine is an assistant professor of biology at Wheelock College and a veterinarian. She holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from Lesley University and has taught writing and literature courses there as well. Her publications include mostly science-related essays for adults, one of which was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2007.

In addition to teaching college level students, she has also been teaching children’s environmental education classes for the Massachusetts Audubon Society and other nature centers in Massachusetts and Connecticut for over 15 years. Bone by Bone: Comparing Animal Skeletons is her first book for children.

HOW YOU’RE HELPING 

Worldbuilders is a charity founded by author Pat Rothfuss in order to use the collective power of readers, fellow authors and book lovers to make the world a better place. We raise money for other charities who we believe do the best work in their field: Heifer InternationalMercy Corps, and First Book. These charities’ missions and values are exactly what we have in mind when we think, “Where can this money do the most good?”

Heifer plays the long game, bringing education, materials, and a passing-the-gift philosophy that ensures generations of self-sufficiency down the road. Mercy Corps jumps into action as crises arise, bringing food, clothing, shelter, and education to people caught in dire situations like natural disasters and war. First Book promotes literacy around the world by providing books for educators and administrators, bringing much-needed educational materials to disadvantaged youth.

We’re excited for the opportunity to have fans play games with some of their favorite celebrities all while generating money for these three charities who make sure the money we raise gets to where it’s needed most, and where it will do some real, long-term good.
