Join us for a reading and book signing of Courtney Pippin-Mathur's newest children's book, "Fairies Don't Fight",
About the book: "Nissa and Piper are twins—fairy twins! In fact, they’re the first twin fairies that have ever bloomed in their field. All the other fairies expect that they will be best friends, frolicking happily among the magical mushroom caps and daisy petals. But Nissa and Piper are as different as can be. While Nissa sings loud, Piper wants to quietly read. When Piper wants to make dresses out of long vines, Nissa would rather swing on them until they snap! When Piper works hard collecting gems, Nissa is off chasing fireflies. Will their differences get in the way of the fairy sisters being the very best of friends? Or will they lead to pouting, arguing, and tears? Nissa and Piper must learn to get along! Because everyone knows that fairies play together all day and that fairies don’t fight!"
About the author: Courtney grew up in East Texas and passed the hot summer days reading, drawing, watching She-Ra and exploring her grandma’s farm. She doodled constantly through elementary, middle and high school but didn’t think about art as a career until a fateful art history class at The University of Texas at Austin. After transferring from Government to Studio Art, she moved to the east coast, and started pursing a career in childrens’ books where she could combine all of her favorite things. She now lives in Northern VA now with her husband and three kids and is the author/illustrator of several picture books.
