Talk & Signing with bestselling middle grade author Peter Brown
We’re excited to welcome bestselling, award-winning author Peter Brown for a talk and signing. Peter is beloved for his picture books, including the gorgeous book, The Curious Garden, and Caldecott Honor recipient Creepy Carrots! His bestselling middle grade book, The Wild Robot, brought us Roz, the lovable robot who crash-landed on an island and had to survive in nature. Now Peter brings his trademark heart and wit to the sequel The Wild Robot Escapes, which follows Roz off the island and trapped on a farm in search of her lost son, Brightbill.
