Savage Library

I'm kicking off the summer reading program at the Savage Library!  Which sounds like something that involves cutlasses and pirates, but will probably involve books and banjos instead.  But you never know...

Monster Book Bash

Looking for some liter-scary fun on Halloween? (Wait! Come back! No more terrible puns, I promise!) Ahem. Anyway, you'll probably like the Monster Book Bash, organized by the Minnesota chapter of the Society for Children's Book Writers & Illustrators. I'll be signing books and doing other spooky stuff. Maybe I'll haunt something. You never know.

Figgy Airplane Eucalyptus @ Wild Rumpus

  • Wild Rumpus Bookstore - Minneapolis, MN (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Need to get your fix of books, cats, and chickens? Look no further than the Wild Rumpus. I'll be doing a joint reading with Marsha Wilson Chall (THE SECRET LIFE OF FIGGY MUSTARDO) and Daniel Bernstrom (ONE DAY IN THE EUCALYPTUS, EUCALYPTUS TREE).

Fair warning: It's an official field trip of the Hamline MFAC program, so watch out for kidlit fanatics. There'll be more than usual.

How To Eat An Airplane: Launch Party!

  • Flying Cloud Airport - Eden Prairie, MN (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

June 4th. Book launch. Actual airport. Real, live airplanes.

Come on down to the Wings of the North flight museum for a reading, airplane-themed treats, Special Musical Guests, and airplanes galore. You won't want to miss this one. Promise.

(Note: Musical guests and airplanes not for eating.)

DIRECTIONS

Enter at Gate H on the north end of Flying Cloud Airport.  The gate should be open (with volunteers to direct you), but dial #006 if you come late.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Peter Pearson's debut picture book is an absurdist guide to eating an airplane without embarrassing yourself. (Hint: You will need a knife, a spoon, and a forklift.)
