Tuesday, Oct. 1, 7 p.m.
Join us on Tuesday, October 1 at 7 p.m. for a fun program featuring Jenni and Matt Holm, siblings who write and illustrate books together, including the best-selling Babymouse
comic book series. Jenni also has won three Newbery Honors for her kids’ novels, Our Only May Amelia
, Penny From Heaven
, and Turtle In Paradise
. At our event, the Holms will present their new picture book, The Evil Princess vs. The Brave Knight
. In the book, two siblings find themselves at odds until they decide – albeit temporarily -- to join forces in a quest. In its review, Publishers Weekly noted: “The sly contrast between words and pictures is the source of much of the story’s fun: “He freed the fair maiden from her prison” shows the Brave Knight crossing the bathtub to rescue their cat. It’s a droll portrait of the love-hate sibling bond—both medieval and modern.” At our event, Politics & Prose will be selling copies of the Holm's books, but our program is free and no purchase is required to attend.
