Great news! On Sunday July 31st at 2pm will we be hosting a very special kids day! Join us at the Librairie for another afternoon of juice, cookies, and story readings but there's more: we will also be launching We Need a Horse, written by Sheila Heti and painted by Clare Rojas, from McSweeney's new series of children's books. It's about a speckled horse who is trying to figure out why he was made a horse, with some help from a sassy tennis-playing sheep and a talking apple. Sheila will be reading from We Need a Horse, presenting a slideshow, and answering questions like "How can a sheep play tennis if sheep don't have hands?"
I just read We Need a Horse and I love, love, love it. You'll have to come to the event for the full experience but here's a little preview to get you excited:
And there's more! In celebration of the upcoming kids day and of the awesomeness of kids in general, all kids books are 10% off until the end of July. And to top it off, here are some pictures from our last kids day:
