We have lots of young customers that just love the Big Nate books! The comic strip style is super appealing and the funny stories will have even reluctant readers enjoying the books. If your child happens to be one of those fans, author Lincoln Pierce will be at Hooray for Books on March 29th, talking about his books and signing your copies!
We’ll have specific times closer to the event, but for now, mark your calendars to stop by the store and meet Lincoln Pierce in March. When you buy your book at Hooray For Books, we’ll give you a number to hold your place in line to get your book signed! And if you haven’t checked out the Big Nate books, we highly recommend you do!
Great for ages 8+ and fun for boys AND girls.
