 STORYTIME in partnership with PEASE PARK

Author Lindsay Leslie will be celebrating summertime with her picture book, Dusk Explorers, at Pease Park! Grab your whole family and join us in the great outdoors for storytime and snacks! We'll be there selling copies of Dusk Explorers, as well as Lindsay's other books, Nova the Star Eater and This Book is Spineless. Can't make the event? You can still order a signed copy of the book below.

RSVP in advance here or via the link above. Hope to see you there!


It's that special time of evening, when the hours and the possibilities seem endless: Light is fading. A buzz of excitement and wonder takes over the neighborhood....What outdoor adventures await? Join a diverse group of suburban kids as they dash and dodge in classic street games like tag and kick-the-can and reconnect with nature's simple pleasures catching frogs, hunting fireflies, and climbing trees. These explorers play, laugh, and make the most of their own front yards right up until their parents call out that "It's time to come home!" But when the sun begins to set tomorrow, they'll be back for more evening excitement!

This ode to the timeless magic of summer evenings spent outside will remind kids of the fun and friends that wait just outside their doors and leave adults smiling with nostalgia for their own dusk explorations.


Lindsay Leslie, author of This Book Is Spineless and Nova the Star Eater, enjoys spending evenings outdoors. She graduated from the University of Texas and has more than fifteen years of writing experience in marketing and public relations. She lives with her husband and two boys in Austin, Texas.
