Award-winning author, storyteller, speaker and educator Barbara Jean Hicks grew up in Ferndale, even graduated from FHS. But, even after having 20 books published she says she’s never held a book event here. So this month she will be holding her first Ferndale book signing event at Jensen’s Ferndale Floral.
As she posted on her Facebook page, “Jensen’s Ferndale Floral has been around since I was a kid (probably longer!) and they have a Scandinavian Room with cool Nordic stuff, so it seemed like a great place for a FROZEN party.”
According her website, Hicks has taught at the preschool, middle school and community college levels and worked in an elementary school as author-in-residence, program facilitator and parent educator. She has also written adult novels and marketing copy and edited manuscripts for numerous trade publishers.
