Lisa Riddiough & Eija Sumner - Virtual Picture Book Launch!

Event date: 
Thursday, March 14, 2024 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Join Hamline MFAC graduates Lisa Riddiough and Eija Sumner for a nautical virtual launch event in honor of their new picture books, Pie-Rats! and The Good Little Mermaid's Guide to Bedtime!

About Pie-Rats!:
A band of swashbuckling pie-rats has only one goal: to find dessert! But will their adventures reveal that there is more than one way to satisfy a sweet tooth? With rollicking rhyme and lively illustrations, Pie-Rats! is a hunger-inducing read-aloud that will have readers begging for another helping.

About The Good Little Mermaid's Guide to Bedtime:
Cleverly told through a back and forth between The Good Little Mermaid’s Guide to Bedtime and a mermaid who is resisting bedtime at every turn, this story will delight readers with its hilarious illustrations and adorable but VERY SCARY main character.

Tune in from wherever you are and hear these authors chat all about their delightful new books! There will be time for questions from the audience.

To Attend: Use the link below to register for the event. Pre-registration is required! You can register for the event for free and preorder copies of the books below. All copies of books purchased for the event will include signed bookplates that may be personalized by the authors.
