Looking Back #15: Book Scavenger birthday party!

I’m counting down to the publication of The Unbreakable Code with highlights from the past two years since Book Scavenger was published. So much has happened in such a short time, and I’ve been so busy trying to keep up, that I’ve neglected to share many of the big and small moments. So here we go, in no particular order . . .

A bookseller at the Book Passage Ferry Building reached out to me last year to ask if I could send signed bookplates for copies of Book Scavenger that were being given out as party favors for a scavenger hunt themed 10th birthday. The scavenger hunt clues led the party goers to locations around the Ferry Building. The last place they had to go was Book Passage where they would find copies of Book Scavenger signed to each person, shelved under the last initial of the birthday girl’s name.

After the party, I was sent one of the scavenger hunt booklets and it looks like so much fun! There are directions for the attendees to follow from the ferry with activities like this: “Go to a pier whose number is 8 x 2 +3 – 5 = ____ . Walk to the end of the pier. Do you see any poems? (If not, look harder, they’re there.) Write the poem you like best here.” I haven’t seen the poems that clue is referring to, so I may need to go check that out the next time I’m in San Francisco! I might even follow the whole scavenger hunt, because it looks like it was a lot of fun.
