Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market is proud to announce that local educator and author Amelia Lemar will be signing copies of her first book, It's Okay: The 8 Things All Children Need to Hear, this weekend at our Annual Flea Market!
Lemar, who teaches fifth-grade in Fergus Falls, has just published her first book, It's Okay: The 8 Things All Children Need to Hear.
It's Okay seeks to address the gaps in mental health education, inspiring and guiding caregivers with tools to better help children build confidence, self-respect, and motivation, leading to greater achievement, success, and happiness in adulthood. The book is not just for teachers, childcare providers, social workers -- it's for parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, and anyone who has or works with children!
Released in late May of this year, Lemar's book has - in just a few weeks - already ranked number one in its category on Amazon!
Attendees of this free event can also hear from the author about her future book plans, which include a series of children's books involving her dog, Maverick, as the main character.
Amelia Lemar will be signing copies of her book inside The FARM on Saturday, June 20th, from 10 am until 2 pm and Sunday, June 21st, from noon until 2 pm. Limited copies of the book will also be available.
You can follow the author on Facebook here.

Because The FARM values being an active member of our Fargo-Moorhead community, we've invited our friends at Heidi's Home Rescue to join us. Heidi's Home is a new Fargo dog rescue. You can come to their booth at the flea market and find out more about their services and how you can help rescue dogs - including by dropping off cleaning and pet supplies at this dog rescue donation drive drop-off spot! A list of items needed by the animal rescue can be found here.
Heidi's Home Rescue will also have a prize drawing - enter to win a gift package from our local PetSmart worth over $50!

Worried about the Corona virus? As our FARM friends know, the antique mall is large & social distancing is relatively easy (and we have hand sanitizer at the door, a washroom about halfway through too). Masks are recommended, but not required.
