Picture Books We Love

Book Fest Countdown: Corinne Demas

We’re proud to announce that our summer Children’s Book Festival will be held on Saturday, June 12th.  This year’s theme is Dogs in Picture Books and we have a terrific day planned, packed with storytimes, book signings, art demonstrations, music and lots more fun dog-themed activities.  Come meet other dog lovers and chat with our friends from the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society and Canine Companions. And, of course, your stuffed dog friends are welcome, but please leave your real dogs at home. Can’t wait to see which of your favorite picture book dogs (and their creators) will be here?  Come back often as we’ll reveal an artist/author each day leading up the the big event!  See you there! Woof. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Say hello to Corinne Demas! As a little girl, Corinne tells us there were two things she really wanted but never had: "really long hair and a dog." She used to say when grew up she wanted to be "a writer or President."  Well, now Corinne is a proud dog-owner AND a writer.  She's the author of numerous books for children, as well as for adults, including these two wonderful picture books featuring dogs - the bittersweet story of SAYING GOODBYE TO LULU and the fun romp of ALWAYS IN TROUBLE.

Corinne lives in western mass with her dog and two miniature donkeys (how cool is that?) and is a professor at Mt. Holyoke College. Here she is with her donkeys! Make sure you check out Corinne's website as it has lots more info about her books and even a games and activities page for her picture book, THE LITTLEST MATRYOSHKA. You won't want to miss Corinne's special storytime in our Reading Library at 10:30 on Saturday.  Click here to buy Corinne's books and make sure you check in with us after June 12th to see if we have more signed books in stock. See you Saturday!
