Jacobsen's Books hosts author/ illustrator Christa Pierce
Jacobsen’s Books, Saturday, March 28 at 11am
24 Year Old Author/ Illustrator Makes Her Literary Debut With a Whimsical Book That Reminds Us To Let Others Know They’re Loved

“A sweetly assuring ode to unconditional love.”—Publishers Weekly

Just over a year ago, while she was a senior in college taking her final exams, Christa Pierce got a phone call letting her know that her book, DID YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU, sold at auction and would be published the following year. She was over the moon! The book, originally written as a poem to her mother during a difficult time in their relationship, offers a heartfelt story about the importance of expressing your feelings to those you love.

With a deep and emotional message told simply and beautifully, it reminds one of the wonderful classics Guess How Much I Love You? by Sam McBratney and Love You Forever by Robert Munch. Pierce, who has been painting and telling stories since she was a little girl, has created delightfully endearing characters in a rust-colored baby fox and sweet blue bird. Charmingly illustrated in solid colors with sleek, sloping shapes and vivid, earthy backgrounds, DID YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU is a heartwarming book sure to be cherished.

Christa will be reading and signing her book at Jacobsen’s Books in Historic Downtown Hillsboro on Saturday, March 28th at 11am.
