Valentine the Porcupine Book Release and Dance Party!

Our favorite local bookstore, Gatsby Books, is hosting a book release and booksigning for Derrick Brown's Valentine the Porcupine Dances Funny, with illustrator Jenny Lewis, on Saturday, February 19th at noon.

Fun activities for the kids and a dance party(!) follow the reading.

After the Dance Party, 17 year-old Science Fiction/Fantasy author Kevin Liston will read from and discuss his new book, Legends of the Significants.

If you haven't been to Gatsby Books, you will be delighted at the collection of books Sean has acquired, and the great community he is cultivating through these wonderful FREE events.

I found this fascinating video on the process Jenny Lewis used to illustrate the book. Enjoy!
