Picture Books We Love

Book Fest Countdown: Eileen Christelow

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 Eileen Christelow! Here she is with her dog, Emma, who is the inspiration behind Eileen's DESPERATE DOG picture books. Click here to buy Eileen's book and don't forget to check back with us after the 12th to see if we have signed copies in stock!  And keep a look out for the sequel, DESPERATE DOG WRITES AGAIN, due out this fall. Isn't Emma the cutest? Eileen even has created a mini comic about her sweet pup called Emma's Story that's available on her website. Come see Eileen in our auditorium at 12:30 this Saturday. She's going to be sitting on a panel with Patricia MacLachlan, Barry Moser, Laura Vaccaro Seeger and Katy Schneider. You won't want to miss it!
