Joseph-Beth Welcomes The Story Stop Bus Tour

Random House Children’s Books has launched The Story Stop, a new mobile bookstore, visiting family festivals and retailers throughout the summer across the country!

Head to Joseph-Beth Saturday, August 6 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Sunday, August 7 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to welcome The Story Stop, a fully functional bookstore on wheels created by Random House Kids Books. Offering readers a chance to meet their favorite authors, illustrators, and characters, the bus will travel across the country to spread a love of reading to kids of all ages. The Story Stop at Joseph-Beth will feature signings with authors Micol Ostow (Louise Trapeze) and Lindsey Leavitt (Commander in Cheese) as well as meet-and-greets with beloved characters Babymouse, the Cat in the Hat, and Junie B. Jones.

Micol Ostow is the author of several books for teens, including Amity, Family, and The Devil and Winnie Flynn. Her latest series is perfect for middle-grade lovers of Ivy & Bean and Junie B. Jones – bright, funny, and featuring a heroine who is spunky, sweet, and totally brave (mostly). Lindsey Leavitt is a former elementary school teacher and current writer of many books for pre-teen readers, including Going Vintage and The Chapel Wars. Her most recent series features a family of mice that lives in the White House and is full of cool facts about US history, presidents, and the White House. Middle grade readers who love tiny details and big fun are sure to find a new favorite in the Commander in Cheese series!
