Storytime with Dashka Slater and Love, Escargot
Sunday, February 5 at 11am
Join us on Sunday, February 5 at 11am for a special pre-Valentine’s Day storytime with Dashka Slater, creator of our favorite snail, Escargot! Dashka will read and sign copies of Escargot’s newest adventure, Love Escargot
, which can be purchased online
or at the event.
Bonjour! Escargot is back, with a magnifique beret and a special invitation.
Today is Snailentine's Day, and Escargot is on his way to a party. Will his Snailentine be there? Maybe he will find another snail who also likes to read books and eat salad with a light vinaigrette.
But when he arrives at the party, Escargot is greeted not by a snail, but by a vole. Mon dieu! This is not a Snailentine's Day party at all. It is a Volentine's Day party! At first, Escargot wants to hide in his shell, but in the end, he finds a surprising new friend.
