Elf on the Shelf Author Chanda Bell To Appear At Barnes and Noble Fundraiser To Benefit The Friends of the Gwinnett County Library System
Bestselling children’s author and co-creator of the wildly popular Elf on a Shelf books and movie will partner with the Friends of the Gwinnett County Library to host a very special story time and book signing at Barnes and Noble bookstore in Peachtree Corners. Listen to Chanda read her newest Elf book, have your picture taken with Chanda and the Elf, enjoy special elf coloring sheets and games, and have your book signed!
When customers specifically mention the library while checking out at the Barnes and Noble store and café any time that day, the store will donate a percentage of that sale to the Friends of the Library to support their literacy projects and initiatives.
Chanda Bell, a former reading and English teacher, is the co-author (with her mom, Carol) of The Elf on the Shelf®: A Christmas Tradition and the new sequel, The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition. In 2011, The Elf on the Shelf® came to life as an animated special. An Elf’s Story™ debuted on CBS, boasting a combined viewing audience of almost 10 million people. Bell co-founded Big Canoe Entertainment-the production company that produced the special-and served as one of the executive producers on the project. She co-wrote the script and penned the lyrics to one of the musical numbers.
The book talk and signing will take place on December 8, 2013 at 2pm at the Barnes and Noble bookstore located at 5141 Peachtree Pkwy in Peachtree Corners, Ga.
