Book Release Party! (Boise, ID)

  • Rediscovered Books 180 North 8th Street Boise, ID, 83702 United States (map)

For full details and to RSVP, see the Facebook event here:

Come meet You're Weird, a new creative journal created by local Boise author and illustrator Kate Peterson (AKA The Dapper Jackalope) and published by the good folks at Penguin Random House! Rediscovered Bookshop has been kind enough to host a book signing and release party the evening of the book's release date--misfits, oddballs, weirdos, and strange creatures of all kinds definitely invited!

Happily sitting at the crossroads between a creative journal and a coloring book, You're Weird is a valentine for the inner weirdo in everyone--that part of us that doesn't quite fit in, and secretly isn't even trying. Filled with hand-drawn creatures that are a bit...different...along with lists, writing prompts, activities, and more, it's a delightful and affirming book for creative weirdos everywhere. In our mass-produced world that wants everyone to fit in and fall in line, these quirky pages give us permission to celebrate what makes us each unique--and amazing.

After graduating with her Master's in Literature from Boise State, Kate Peterson started illustrating professionally here in Boise in April of 2014. (You may have seen her prints and cards at local favorites like Mixed GreensIdaho Made, and Rediscovered Bookshop, as well as local events like Art in the Park and Wintry Market!) In March of 2016, Kate got an email out of the blue from an editor at Penguin Random House, asking if she'd thought of working with a major publisher for the coloring book she'd self-published the year before. A year and a half later, this colorable journal is about to hit bookstores across the country!

This will be a fun and casual event at one of Boise's most beloved local small businesses. Copies of the book will be available, as well as some fun stickers and other giftable accessories designed to go with the book. Come say hello, meet the author, get your copy signed, and see this fun and funky creative journal in person!

See you there, weirdos!!
