The first time I visited New York as a young adult, there was just one bookish attraction I wanted to see. It wasn't the statue of Alice Liddell in Central Park. Nor was it Patience and Fortitude outside the NY public library. No, what I wanted to see was the world-famous Books of Wonder bookstore! Up to that point, I had never been inside a store completely dedicated to children's books -- and what a store it was! To this day, I always make a point of stepping inside to lose myself for an hour or two.
This fact is among many reasons that I am immensely pleased to announce that on August 11, Mary and I will be at Books of Wonder for a Peter Nimble Launch Party!
I cannot stress how much I would love to pack out this store! Bring a million friends! There will be games, readings, giveaways of awesome t-shirts, and snacks! Please note the awesomeness of that last fact. Snacks, people! Take it away, Andrew:
Please come by and say hello! It's going to be an awesome time. As for my besties on the West coast, details coming soon on a big LA signing event at the end of August!
