Date(s) - Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Join recently published author, Valerie Bolling, for our first online ShopTalk as she explains her process in finding book marketing opportunities when her debut picture book launched the weekend before everything shut down.


About Valerie Bolling:

Let’s Dance! (Boyds Mills & Kane) is Valerie Bolling’s debut picture book. In addition to being an author, Valerie has been an educator for over 25 years. When she taught elementary students, it was difficult to find diverse literature for them. Thus, she is passionate about creating stories in which all children can see themselves and feel valued and heard.

A graduate of Tufts University and Columbia University, Teachers College, Valerie currently works as an Instructional Coach with middle and high school teachers.

Valerie and her husband live in Connecticut and enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, going to the theater, and dancing.

Cost of the workshop is $10 for members. We have space for 195 attendees. If you decide not to attend, please let us know by July 17, so we can try to fill your spot. Any questions can be directed to Stacy Mozer at
