Dog-Eared Pages Used Bookstore in northeast Phoenix is a magical place on a usual day. On first entering the nearly hidden location the reader is met with displays of books by local writers and the beginnings of the multitude of used and collectible books.
Proprietors, Thom and Melanie, will go out of their way to help you find that special book on your list or direct you to the back where you will enter a maze of books of every description.
During January there will be a different kind of magic through fairy portals and mini-story books by the creative team of Ann Videan and Cherie Scott.
The art wall at DEP with the display of fairy portals and books.
Cherie designs and creates the fairy portals and Ann writes a special story for the wee inhabitants.
Ann is also the author of Song of the Ocarina about Lark, a New Zealand teen who learns she is the "Maestra" of the realm of Delfaerune, "the only Noble Fae with the musical prowess and Earth connection to save humans from Dark Fae magic."
Ann also has a coloring and writing prompt book based on the magical fairly portals Cherie creates.
Also available are colorful or color-able notecards and other gifts.
On January 12 from 4:00 to 6:30 there will be an artist reception at Dog-Eared Pages with food, smiles, magic, and fun. Learn more and find a map in the links below. If you can't it make that day, stop by the store and join in the search for a wee fairy portal hidden somewhere midst the books. Take it to the front and receive a mini book about the wee fairy that lives within.
You will be enchanted. Hope to see you there!
