Alex’s Book Club: Wild Wild Zest by Wendy Ann Mattox

July 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT


It’s story time!

Welcome back for another book club in my virtual clubhouse. Grab your favorite reading blanket and get a yummy snack. We’re traveling to the exciting prairies of the American west.

Guest Author: Wendy Ann Mattox

Our guest author is Wendy Ann Mattox. She’s a Christian children’s author who loves fun, the beautiful Idaho mountains, and finding God in small moments every day.

She’s the author of the Magic Magnifying Glass series.

She’s also starting a brand new series about time-traveling siblings Max & Maddie. The first book is called Wild Wild Zest.

Fun & Games

During our program on Saturday, Wendy will read a short portion of Wild Wild Zest. She’ll share some stories about life in the beautiful Idaho mountains, and she’ll answer your questions…about anything!

But before we even start the book club fun, Wendy has organized an outdoor scavenger hunt to get us in the outdoor adventure mood.

Download the scavenger hunt to get started. If you want to post your pictures to Instagram, we’d love to see them! Just tag @amandajtrumpower and @wendyannmattoxauthor.

Free Books

As always, we’ll end our session with an awesome book giveaway. Author Lady will pick a kid at random from our live book club guests to win a free copy of Wild Wild Zest–plus a copy of my first book, Case of the Robbed Recipe.

Hope to see you there!
