WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Meet ‘Purrdie Burrdie’ author Danitra Hunter @ Paper Boat Booksellers’ second-anniversary celebration

(WSB photos)

Author/illustrator Danitra Hunter‘s “Purrdie Burrdie” character is meant to inspire you to love and believe in yourself. The publication of her first book is a manifestation of what that belief can help you accomplish. She is at Paper Boat Booksellers (6040 California SW) all afternoon during the independent bookstore’s second-anniversary celebration – and tells us this is her first official event launching her book! She has coloring sheets for kids, too:

We first told you about Danitra and “Purrdie Burrdie” last year, when she was crowdfunding to get her book published. The campaign was a success – “I did it!” she enthused when we saw her today – and now her book’s available for purchase at Paper Boat, which is also a success, marking two years in business:

Co-proprietor Desirae Judy is there as are Paper Boat fans:

The shop is open today until 6 pm.

    That’s wonderful! Ms Hunter was Kellen D’s pre-k teacher a couple years ago. We’ll head down to Paper Boat tomorrow, to buy our copy of Purrdie Burrdie, so we can read it together.

    Best of luck Ms. Hunter! Love the illustrations and the message. I love children’s books. Will be there to get my copy for my friends and family.
