Lance Armstrong is coming to the Wordstock Festival.
Well, OK, not really. But Lance fans (especially little ones) still have a reason to get excited about Wordstock.
That’s because local author Ashley Maceachern tells us she’ll be a featured author. Ashley is a friend of Lance’s and a former Nike executive who has written Lance in France, a children’s book (with fun illustrations by Michelle Barbera) that follows Lance through the adventures of the Tour de France.
Kirkus Reviews said the book, “succeeds on many levels with a giddy warmth that is both inspirational and a great ride.”
Maceachern will read from the book on Sunday at the Oregon Convention Center (2:00 pm in Exhibit Hall D). She’ll also speak about the inspiration for the book and a Q & A and book-signing session will follow.
