A Pre-Pub Party for Dan Santat!

Secret Garden is hosting a Pre-Pub Party for upcoming conference keynote speaker Dan Santat—AND YOU'RE ALL INVITED!

You know him from his book-making, hilarious illustrations in Oh No!: Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World (by Mac Barnett, Hyperion Books), Chicken Dance (by Tami Sauer, Sterling), The Secret Life of Walter Kitty (by Barbara Jean Hicks, Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers), Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies (by Andrea Beatty, Abrams) and The Christmas Genie (by Dan Gutman, Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing).

What you will know him for, soon, is his to-be-released graphic novel Sidekicks (Arthur A. Levine Books, July 2011, $12.99). In celebration of its future release, and to learn from the horse's mouth more about Santat's My Social Experiment to Help Independent Bookstores, we are throwing an old fashioned Make-Your-Own-Banana-Split-Party! With Bubbly! For our book-seller, book-blogger, book-reviewer, book-journalist, book-lover friends throughout the region.

Come join us for the 'scream, for the bubbly, to meet an illustrator with an exciting new product to push, and for the conversation about saving independent booksellers, one authorial effort and one pre-pub party at a time!

We've got lots of advance copies of Sidekicks to raffle off, which Dan will do a custom drawing in for all winners! You should come!
