Kallie George

Kallie George is a wonderful writer. We fell in love with her book; Mr. M when the shop first opened, and it acted as an invitation to get to know so much more about Kallie and her work. The scope of the kind of books she writes really speaks to the depths of her imagination. Her books are for those who love to read, and all kinds of readers will find a favorite. Characters are unique for children’s books, and each one takes us on a different journey.


This weekend, we’re thrilled to host an afternoon here at the shop with Kallie to celebrate her NEW CHAPTER BOOK “Clover’s Luck”. This book is the first in a series from the “Magical Animal Adoption Agency”. We’re totally hooked, and think you will be too. We’ve crafted up an art project to share, and Kallie will be around to sign books, say hello and maybe tell you a few things about what’s coming next for the Magical Animals. We’ve also fully stocked our shelves with  ALL of Kallie’s titles, so that you can see what we mean about her truly inspiring range of work.


Here’s a short interview we did with Kallie – we hope it inspires you to come join us for a magical afternoon this weekend!

Saturday, March 7th 2-4pm FREE!

Who are you + what do you do?
I’m an author and editor for Simply Read Books, and I also lead creative writing workshops for aspiring writers. Mostly, I spend my days dreaming and writing and answering questions like how do you polish a unicorn’s horn, or what kind of treat would a dragon like to eat.

What connects you to Collage Collage?
Collage Collage has hosted a few events for different Simply Read Books’ authors and illustrators. Yay! I’ve also had other events at Collage Collage including one for my book The Melancholic Mermaid, illustrated by Abigail Halpin.

Do you have a favorite creative outlet?
I love lots of creative things, including, of course, writing. But other than writing I love knitting and swing dancing.
What’s your all time favorite craft supply?
Beautiful pens to write with. Glitter is pretty awesome too!
Hurrah for glitter! We’ll be sure to have some on hand on Saturday March 7th!
