Sunday Story Time with Josh Funk and J.R. Krause
In celebration of our one-year anniversary, join us for a special Sunday Morning Story Time with authors Josh Funk and J.R. Krause. J.R. Krause is a first-time picture book author, and he scored an Indie Next nod right out of the gate with "Dragon Night", which debuted in late January. In it, a boy and his dragon embark on a dazzling nighttime journey in this heartwarming friendship story about facing fears and helping others. Kirkus Reviews called it, "Cozy. Well-crafted bedtime reading." Before J.R. was a picture-book author, he was an award-winning animator with The Simpsons and Futurama, which just so happen to be two of the greatest shows in television history. Josh Funk is one of our store's absolute favorite authors, and we're thrilled to welcome him back for an event. Josh joined us during our Grand Opening celebration last year, when we got a sneak peek at "Albie Newton", which was his sixth book published. Since then, he's published four more: "How to Code a Sandcastle", "Lost in the Library", "Mission Defrostable" (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast #3), and "It's Not Hansel and Gretel" (March 1), to give him 10 picture books published in a five-year span. And he still has more on the way, with "How to Code a Rollercoaster" slated for release this September! Join us for what should be an imaginative and epic story time!!!
