In celebration of the Summer Solstice, Little Moon + Arrow is partnering with Little Brown and Company publishing for a special *free* family- friendly event that will be bringing our community a reading and signing of a beautiful new book* entitled, “Being Edie is Hard Today” written by Ben Brashares and illustrated by local artist Elizabeth Bergeland.
This gorgeous debut picture book is a warm and tender story about being yourself and reminds readers that human connection is essential, tears can heal, and a new day is coming.
Elizabeth will be doing the reading on June 22nd at noon. Elizabeth lives in our community and, in addition to being an artist, is a super mom, friend, human and a shop favorite. We are so happy that she will be coming to Little Moon to host this special event with us and the story of Edie with you.

This warm and tender story about being yourself--even when you're sad, anxious, or feeling lonely--reminds readers that human connection is essential, tears can heal, and a new day is always coming.
