Book Signing: Titcomb’s Bookshop

April 20, 2015
In Sandwich, Massachusetts, along the historic 6A on Cape Cod, you can find Titcomb’s Bookshop. They have been in business for over forty years. Located in a historical building that dates back to 1690, they are one of the best independent bookshops that I have had the pleasure of visiting. Today the topic was kids and chickens and I was thrilled to meet many new friends.


When I entered, this awesome chicken display was featured along with my book and a sign advertising the event.  The parking lot was full when I arrived and over thirty people came to learn how to get started and pick my brain about their existing flocks.


Kids, their parents, and grandparents were looking forward to a wonderful interactive chat. They even picked up a few chicken phrases to interact with their flock. The kids were bursting with enthusiasm, were super smart, and asked terrific questions!


Afterwards, we were treated to delicious lemonade and a darling assortment of chicken and egg sugar cookies. They were just yummy!


I signed a bunch of books. The kiddos all spelled out their names, but the best book I signed today was when one woman asked me to make hers out to “The Mother Hen”. She then went on to show me a picture on her phone of her and her favorite gal, a Rhode Island Red.
I said to her, “I bet you were surprised to find that you could love a chicken?” She smiled back and agreed. These are just some of the simple things that make my heart smile.
