What do you do when one of your best girlfriends asks you to meet her at an book signing event in town? Well you dress up because it's Fancy Nancy Night!
This is the wonderfully artful sign that invites everyone into the famous
Book Review bookstore in Huntington village.
Book signing events are advertised in advance with huge posters in their front windows.
Tonight Robin Preiss Glasser, illustrator of the famous series, Fancy Nancy books came to the delight of many little girls and their fancy moms.
My friend, Nancy Hauca, an elementary school teacher in East Northport, NY, has created many lessons over the years featuring the books of Jane O'Connor.
Robin Preiss Glasser, came in her fancy costume of peacock blue spangles with a tiara and Rhinestone earrings.
I met Nancy outfitted in the required pink feathered boa. The attic of the Jarvis House turned up a real mink set of heads & tails like your auntie had, Rhinestone dangle earrings and collar, and a glittery organdy blouse.
In this picture with our friend Elizabeth Short, my fuchsia elbow length gloves sported two Rhinestone bracelets!
Many, many children enjoyed the time spent with Ms. Glasser, as she read from the newest book in the series.
They were dressed in their fancy clothes too.
Little girls sweetly followed along with the text as the illustrator read.
Children and parents retired to the balcony after the reading, for book signings.
Nancy had her copy and awaited her turn with Ms. Glasser.
The illustrator wrote a special inscription for Mrs. Hauca and her students.
She posed with a store employee, also decked out for the evening.
So I guess that you get out the glamorous clothing and meet your friend down town when she asks. Girls just want to have fun!
