Bowling Green Author and Illustrator Stacy Schilling will be attending the City of Florence Book and Literacy Festival in Florence, KY on February 24, 2024, to introduce her new children’s picture book series, “The Frizz Girls.” The series aims to empower young girls with wavy or curly hair to embrace and care for their natural curls.

During the event, Stacy will enchant young minds by reading her first two books in the series, “Stacy Learns to Love Her Wavy Hair, And You Can Too!” and “What the Frizz?!?! How to Take Care of Your Wavy and Curly Hair Find Your Hair Type…Starring The Frizz Girls.” Kids attending the event will also receive an activity worksheet and a coloring page related to hair from Stacy’s soon-to-be-published coloring and activity books. Kids can also have their picture taken with Stacy with a parent’s or guardians permission.

Parents and guardians will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase a limited number of hardcover copies of the two books and a limited number of the accompanying The Hair Chronicles Journal, featuring 200 pages for tracking your wavy or curly hair during Salon Appointments, Wash and Refresh Days, Good and Bad Hair Days, and more. Additional books and The Frizz Girl t-shirts are available through The Frizz Girls’ website.

The Frizz Girls series is born from Stacy’s personal experiences, aiming to provide a valuable resource for young readers with wavy or curly hair, promoting self-acceptance and confidence in embracing their unique hair types.
