Meet Chris Van Dusen – “A Piglet Named Mercy”

Apr 27, 2019 @ 10:00am   Events, Member Events

April 27 Indie Bookstore Day

Special Kids event at Letterpress Books
Chris Van Dusen presenting his newest book:
A Piglet Named Mercy, by Kate DiCamillo & Chris Van Dusen
Every porcine wonder was once a piglet! Celebrate the joy of a new arrival with this endearing picture-book prequel to the best-selling Mercy Watson series.

Mr. Watson and Mrs. Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes their lives feel a bit too ordinary. Sometimes they wish something different would happen. And one day it does, when someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door. In a delightful origin story for the star of the Mercy Watson series, a tiny piglet brings love (and chaos) to Deckawoo Drive — and the Watsons’ lives will never be the same.

Come early for this very special presentation!

When: Saturday, April 27th from 10am-12pm

Where: Letterpress Books (Northgate Plaza, 91 Auburn Street)
