NYT Best Selling Author/Illustrator WILLIAM JOYCE

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 6:30pm

We are thrilled to welcome William Joyce to The Reading Bug!

We are celebrating the re-issue of Mr. Joyce's classics:

  • SANTA CALLS – A holiday classic about three kids who venture to the North Pole to help Santa defeat an army of evil elves…now complete with lift-the-flap letters from Santa himself!
  • SNOWY ROLLIE – Olie’s Rolie Polie world has turned snowy! But when the sun turns back on, what will happen to Olie’s new buddy, Mr. Snowie?

William Joyce does a lot of stuff but children’s books are his true bailiwick (The Numberlys, Rolie Polie Olie, Dinosaur Bob, George Shrinks, and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also his Academy Award–winning short film, to name a few). He lives in Shreveport, Louisiana. Talk to William Joyce and look at upcoming work at @HeyBillJoyce on Twitter and Instagram.

PRESENTATION FOLLOWED BY BOOK SIGNING 

 

FUN FACT:  Owner of The Reading Bug, Lauren Savage got her very first Author-signed book from William Joyce in the 1980's...a first edition of George Shrinks!  Years later, she met Bill in NYC at a book conference and had that same book signed again!
