@SueBadeau "Book Signing, Coloring, Wine and Chocolate"
Author and Illustrator Sue and Chelsea Badeau celebrated the local launch of their book, "Building Bridges of Hope: A Coloring Book for Adults Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma" with a book-signing event at the Big Blue Marble Bookstore in their home neighborhood of Mt. Airy in Philadelphia on Friday night, October 14th. Joining them will be another local author, Latasha Goodman-Shears, author of: "Dear Wives: Side Chicks Are Winning."
The Big Blue Marble Bookstore, located at 551 Carpenter Lane in Philadelphia, likes to celebrate local authors and artists and has been honored in Philadelphia Magazine as one of the "Best of Philly" - the magazine says, "Like so much of Mount Airy, Big Blue Marble is well thought-out, community-oriented, and full of unexpected delights."
The Badeaus shared sample coloring pages, read excerpts from their book and encouraged participants to use the practical tools in their book as a way to both prevent stress as well as coping with stress or trauma in their lives. Goodman-Shears will lead a lively discussion on marriage. Throughout the evening, participants were offered wine, lemonade and chocolate goodies.
