We had a wonderful time this past weekend with our two events! Many of our friends came in to Meet Curious George, and George was so happy to meet all of you. We also had a lovely early evening event with husband-and-wife author team Mark and Sheri Dursin as we celebrated their novel, Labors of an Epic Punk, the story of Odysseus son, Telemachus, as he tries to get through high school while his father is having adventures on his way back from the Trojan War. If you missed either event, we do still have more Curious George books as well as more copies of Labors of an Epic Punk!
