Upcoming events! Please note that this list gets updated as additional groups book us.

Sorry, we have completed our summer line-up! We are now putting together schedules for this fall and spring 2024. Please email if you would like to be included! Thank you.

In-person storytimes are back at the Patterson Memorial Library with Mr. Kent! Plus Mr. Kent, Mrs. Erin, Razzle, Chomper and Zoodle have over 200 videos still online if you want to see The Barnards in action! The videos have reached thousands so far. Check out the Patterson Memorial Library's Facebook Page or Seabear Press' Facebook page. A You Tube channel was added in April 2021 for a sampling of what is on Facebook.

Interested in holding an event? Whether you just want to have an author sell and sign or want a whole storytime, Seabear Press has you covered! Send us an email about what you are thinking and we will give you all of the information that you need - including a PDF flyer of your event to help you advertise. Plus if you can get a neighboring group to book us for back-to-back events, we will knock $25 off at each venue and you can split the mileage!

Our storytimes aren't just reading. Of course there will be books, but the author will present a variety of interactive fun that fits your needs such as fingerplays, songs and music, learning to and drawing a dinosaur with Erin, author and illustrator Q&As, candy, bubbles (if you allow it) and book signings where The Barnards will sign, personalize and draw something fun inside of your book while you watch!


Space and availability are limited so e-mail today and we will be happy to send you details!
