BEDTIME MATH 2 BOOK LAUNCH GLOW-IN-THE-DARK GEOMETRY PARTY

http://bedtimemath.org/your-underwear-and-bedtime-math-book-2/

The second Bedtime Math book hits shelves Tuesday, March 11th,
with all-new mischief-making math riddles ... and a nationwide
launch party!

To celebrate the publication of "Bedtime Math 2: This Time
It's Personal," some two hundred bookstores in 44 states have
planned to build giant geometric shapes out of glowsticks, then
flick off the lights to see them shine. Author Laura Bilodeau
Overdeck will attend New York-area parties to read to children
and sign books.

For a glow-in-the-dark party near you, see

http://bedtimemath.org/glow-in-the-dark-parties/

First featured in these pages two years ago, Bedtime Math aims
"to make the nightly math problem as common as the bedtime
story." Since the debut of its first book, the site has also
rolled out a parent blog:
