Michigan Reads Author Coming to Pittsfield Branch!

Michigan Reads is a one state, one children's book program that "highlights the importance of early literacy by focusing on a picture book by a Michigan author."

The Ann Arbor District Library is thrilled to be hosting the author of the 2009 Michigan Reads title, The Pout-Pout Fish. Deborah Diesen will be coming to the Pittsfield Branch at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 11, 2010. She will feature The Pout-Pout Fish as well as her new title, Barefooted, Bad-Tempered Baby Brigade. This will be a great program for the whole family.

Past Michigan Reads titles are Barnyard Song written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by Robert Bender, Bed Hogs written by Kelly S. DiPucchio and illustrated by Howard Fine, Big Chickens written by Leslie Helakoski and illustrated by Henry Cole and Raccoon Tune written by Ann Arbor author Nancy Shaw and illustrated by Howard Fine.

Books will be on sale at the program, courtesy of Nicola's Books, and the author will be available for signing.
