Fairbanks will read from her 10-book series on Valentino The Love Bunny. Guests can have their picture taken with the character, learn about his purpose, and purchase books signed by the author along with other plush toys. Tea, lemonade and cupcakes are provided.
Valentino The Love Bunny is based on the real-life adventures of Fairbanks’ Netherland Dwarf bunny of the same name. His inquisitive, loving and gentle nature inspired her to write about him, his animal and human family, as well as friends both old and new. Fairbanks says, “Valentino represents a symbol to create change in the world in a positive way. Sharing his tales is a way to generate more love and kindness and bring back traditional values that are sorely needed in today’s tough, fast-paced society.”
The books gently teach universal messages about love, family, tolerance, patience, comfort, confidence, hope, good manners, accountability, nature, spirituality and charity. With a growing fan base of over 33,000 followers around the world, she credits Valentino for “Giving life to a global movement to be a force for good, with the motto we can all take to heart; Caritas Vincit Omnia – “Love Conquers All.”
The meet-and-greet and reading takes place on July 15 from 2-4 p.m. Chaucer’s Bookstore is located at 3321 State St. in Loreto Plaza in Santa Barbara.
