Earlier this year when I flew to Minneapolis to speak at Target I left feeling like I’d made about a hundred new friends. “Minnesota nice” is no joke, and I was so sad to leave a city that was full of so many talented and friendly people. So I’m thrilled to announce that we’re heading back to Minneapolis for the D*S Book Tour, with an event on Monday, October 10th. The details are below, I hope you’ll come join us for fun, books, crafting and raising money for a great local arts charity, Free Arts Minnesota. xo, grace

Afterward, we’ll get together for the larger celebration of the book launch, where you can buy copies of the book and have yours signed! Drinks and treats will be served. Proceeds from this event will benefit the local arts charity, Free Arts Minnesota.
We will also have a custom backdrop designed by a local artists, against which you can take photos (courtesy of Adrienne Page) with your friends and fellow guests!
