Join author Will Lach at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 14, for a special presentation for families of a pair of picture books drawn from two of Norman Rockwell’s most popular images, each with a rhyming text that’s perfect for reading aloud or sharing with a grown-up. In classic Rockwell fashion, the 23 vignettes will elicit wry smiles of recognition from young and old at childhood’s everyday pleasures. As a special tribute to Norman Rockwell, the Bookstore will be serving Coca Cola, as this is something that Rockwell loved and shared with the children he worked with. Apple cider will also be served for those who prefer it.
