October 7 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Rachel Bate signs her balloon fiesta -related children’s book, “Turquoise Tail” on Saturday, October 7 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at Treasure House Books & Gifts, 2012 South Plaza NW in Old Town, Albuquerque, NM. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (505) 242-7204. A little coyote pup is born looking very different from her siblings. The desert critters of the night laugh and make fun of the way she looks, hurting her very deeply. When a bright comet streams across illuminating the moonlit New Mexico sky, what will happen? Set during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Rachel Bate has lived in New Mexico since 1993, where she has been captivated by the natural beauty and the critters that appear in her stories. She is a retired elementary and special education teacher after a stellar thirty-seven-year teaching experience. Rachel writes her stories in the hopes of encouraging children to follow their dreams, be mindful of others, and to take care of our beautiful planet with all its amazing critters. She collaborated with her sister (and the illustrator!) Rebecca Jacob with each of her books to create engaging, colorful pictures that coincide beautifully with the stories.
