Tomie dePaola presents Quiet

Sunday, October 14th, 2018, 2 p.m.

Tomie dePaola never misses a year at Gibson's Bookstore, and we're thrilled to bring this award-winning children's author and illustrator back to present his newest children's picture book, Quiet! A book about mindfulness and stillness, teaching a lesson on enjoying quiet company.

Gibson's is blessed to have a national treasure such as Tomie dePaola live nearby, and we're thrilled that he is coming back for another visit. Have you or your child ever had a burning question that you wanted to ask this legendary author/illustrator? We'll have a Q&A and chat, and then Tomie will sign any of his titles for you (are you planning for holiday gifts yet?).

Over 15 million copies of his books have sold worldwide, and he is one of the only people to have received both the Caldecott Honor Award (Strega Nona) and the Newbery Honor Award (26 Fairmount Avenue).

Can't make this event? Give us a call (603-224-0562) or write us an email (gibsons@gibsonsbookstore.com) and we'd be happy to set a book aside to be signed for you.

In a gorgeous and contemplative new picture book, legendary author-illustrator Tomie dePaola reminds us that mindfulness—being quiet, still, and present with one another—is a very special thing.

Everything is in such a hurry, busy as busy can be.
The birds are flying so fast, the dragonfly is zooming over the water—even the trees are waving their leaves.
