Julie Murphy | If the Shoe Fits

TICKET SALES FOR THIS EVENT HAVE ENDED. If you need technical assistance, please send an email to staff@bluewillowbookshop.com.


We are delighted to launch Disney Publishing's Meant to Be series with Julie Murphy's If the Shoe Fits. This is a great book, and a great new series that we are proud to support! This is Julie’s first adult book under the new adult imprint, Hyperion Avenue. 

This is a ticketed event and there are two ticket options: a limited attendance (75 person capacity) in-person event at which CDC guidelines will be followed and virtual attendance at the in-person event. All tickets include a signed copy of If the Shoe Fits; personalization is available if your ticket is purchased by 6:00 pm on Saturday, July 31.

  • In person attendees will receive a branded If the Shoe Fits keychain and a few other goodies.
  • The first 50 virtual attendees will receive a branded If the Shoe Fits shoe bag in addition to their book. Once the shoe bags are gone, all virtual tickets will include a signed book.

This event will be ticketed through Eventbrite and you can purchase tickets here. Ticket sales will end at noon on Monday, August 2.  There will be no walk up tickets available for the in-person event.

We will let you know when your books are available for in-store pickup and all other books will be shipped after the event. You will receive a link to the virtual event 24 hours and 1 hour before the event at the email address you use to purchase your tickets.
