We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of Skunk and Badger from our bookshop; as a special thank you, we will include a bookplate signed by both the author and the illustrator!  Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!
