Eric Litwin Book Release Party!!!
Tuesday, July 29th | 7pm
LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE!!!
Eric Litwin, author of the New York Times bestselling Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, has a brand new picture book coming out on this very day! The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nuthouse is the first in a new series and is bound to be another classic and you can be among the first to get signed books.
Here's a little preview. As you can see, it is simultaneously fun and sweet ... and it ROCKS!
Because Little Shop is just too small to handle all this amazement, Eric will be reading and singing and guitar playing and book signing (and just generally creating magic) at the First Baptist Church of Decatur (Clairemont Avenue and Commerce Drive). Doors open at 6pm.
(Thanks, First Baptist!)
Signing Line Details
Your family must purchase at least one copy of The Nuts book at the event to get in the signing line. Eric will personalize and sign all your Nuts books.
If you desire, Eric will sign (not personalize) ONE of the following Pete the Cat books that you bring from home or purchase that evening: I Love My White Shoes, Rocking in my School Shoes, Groovy Buttons, and Saves Christmas. (Eric will not sign other Pete books or merchandise.)
We at Little Shop are super excited to have this opportunity to launch Eric's new series. This should be an incredibly special event. We hope to see you all there!
