Josh Funk and Heidi E.Y. Stemple in Person

Join us in person on Saturday, October 28th at 2PM for a fun story hour event with author Josh Funk and Heidi E.Y. Stemple! Josh will be here to present his new book Dear Unicorn and Heidi will be discussing some of her early reader chapter books including her latest release Eagles in the End Zone

About Dear Unicorn

Two pen pals receive the shock of a lifetime in this giggle-inducing ode to friendship, art, and keeping an open mind!

Connie's art class is partnering up with pen pals this year, and she loves exchanging letters with her new friend, Nic, even though the two of them are polar opposites. Connie takes her art seriously and thinks things like kittens are nothing more than a distraction, while Nic has a more whimsical approach to painting and knows the value of a good cupcake. But both are eagerly awaiting the end of year pen pal art festival where their two classes will finally meet.

But they're in for quite the shock...

Connie doesn't know Nic is a unicorn. And Nic has no clue that Connie is a human.

It turns out, though, that even this surprise can't get in the way of true friendship. Through their letters, they see that their differences are their strengths--and that they lave a lot to learn from each other. 

With Josh Funk's signature laugh-out-loud humor and Charles Santoso's explosively fun illustrations, Dear Unicorn is a celebration of new friends, art, and stepping outside your comfort zone.

About Eagles in the End Zone

It’s game day for birds of a feather in this infectiously charming Level 1 Ready-to-Read from the author of Flamingo Bingo and Toucan with Two Cans!

Football fans crowd into the stands to cheer on the exciting match of Turkeys versus Eagles. As the players take their place on the field, every bird is flapping and flipping with football fever. Let the game begin!

About Heidi E.Y. Stemple
Heidi didn’t want to be a writer when she grew up. In fact, after she graduated from college, she became a probation officer in Florida. It wasn’t until she was 28 years old that she gave in and joined the family business, publishing her first short story in a book called Famous Writers and Their Kids Write Spooky Stories. The famous writer was her mom, author Jane Yolen. Since then, she has published more than thirty-five books and numerous short stories and poems, mostly for children.
Heidi lives and writes on a big old farm in Massachusetts that she shares with one very large cat who lives inside, and a dozen deer, a family of bears, three coyotes, two bobcats, a gray fox, tons of birds, and some very fat groundhogs who live outside. Once a year she calls owls for the Audubon Christmas Bird Count.

This event is free and open to the public.
