From the brilliant mind of creator Peter Reynolds comes his newest, beautiful picture book, OUR TABLE, which reminds us all to slow down, take a breath, and enjoy our cherished time with the people we love. Peter will join us for an in-person event to celebrate the release of OUR TABLE, just in time for Thanksgiving. Peter H. Reynolds brings his signature touch of love and kindness to this special, timely picture book, as families now, more than ever, are rediscovering and reevaluating what means the most: time together with one another. Peter will read OUR TABLE, answer audience questions, followed by a book signing. 

At this time, face masks are required to be worn at all in-person events, no exceptions. Tickets to this event are $5.00 per person, and can be redeemed for $5.00 off your purchase of any of Peter H. Reynold's books available in-store the day of the event. The first 50 people to purchase Peter's new book, OUR TABLE, will receive an exclusive OUR TABLE spatula at the event, while supplies last. The $5.00 coupon is only valid the day of the event and will be given to attendees at check-in. 

If you're not able to attend this event, Peter will personalize copies of OUR TABLE ordered from us on or before November 20th. Please include the name of the person you'd like your book inscribed to in the "order comments" when checking out on our website.

Violet longs for the time when her family was connected: before life, distractions, and technology pulled them all away from each other. They used to gather at the table, with food and love, to make memories, share their lives, and revel in time spent together. But now her family has been drifting apart, and with nobody to gather around it, the table grows smaller and smaller.

Can Violet remind her family of the warmth of time spent together, and gather around the table once more?

A mystical fable that feels at once timeless and utterly of the present moment, Our Table is renowned, bestselling creator Peter H. Reynolds at his best. Exquisite, expressive watercolor tells a tender story, growing from monochrome into luscious, joyful color as Violet's family is reunited around the beloved table. An ode to traditions that unite families, Our Table brings readers together with a universal message of gratitude.
