Mrs. P Reads at Powell’s!

February wrapped up with a lovely event at our Cedar Hills Crossing store, where Mrs. P (also known as actress Kathy Kinney) read from her book of classic fairy tales to a crowd of over 300 delighted first and second graders. Captivated, the audience of children and adults alike listened to tales spiced with Mrs. P's own quirky anecdotes and humorous divulgences.

Please visit Mrs. P's website for an online library of tales read by (who else?) the ever-entertaining Mrs. P!

Powell's would like to thank Mrs. P, Dana Plautz, and the rest of the fine folks at Mrs. P Enterprises. Without their charitable contribution of chartered buses, 300 smiling faces would not have been able to attend the afternoon's event.

In true fairy-tale conclusion, a splendid time was had by all!
