Announcing the Genius Desserts Book Tour! (a.k.a. The Eat Cookies with Kristen Tour)

Come meet Kristen and other fellow dessert freaks (and eat lots of treats).

October  9, 2018

The Genius Desserts book tour kicks off on the West Coast in a couple weeks and I would love to see you!

Come eat treats, chat with fellow dessert freaks, and have me write love letters and draw custom doodles in your books—just for you or for very special, very ahead-of-the-game holiday gifts. (This is real—I've done all of this and I'll do it again.)

These events are the best parts of writing a book—I can't wait to see you in real life!

Oh hi. Come eat treats (and talk about them) with me!
