Fritz Perry Will Present Book

cecil.jpgIf you’re like me, about now you’re ready to set the wish lists aside and take a break from the busiest month of the year. Even for just an hour. Maybe sit somewhere warm. Perhaps listen to a good story.

Sound nice?

Then, friends, grab the kids and keep a little time open in the weekend schedule. Popular author Marie Fritz Perry will visit River City Books at 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 15, to discuss her great new picture book. “Cecil’s New Year’s Eve Tail” is the story of Cecil, a snake who is invited to a New Year’s Eve ball in New York City. Cecil’s insecurities almost prevent him from enjoying the evening with his friends and, along the way he learns an important lesson about acceptance and friendship.

Marie Fritz Perry was born in Northfield and earned a bachelor’s degree from Smith College. She also earned a master’s in library and information science from Dominican University, and has since worked in Minnesota schools as an artist-in-residence teaching about children’s literature and book illustration. “Cecil’s New Year’s Eve Tail” is her second book following her first children’s work, A Gift for Sadia, a big seller at River City Books.

This free event will include a reading, a power point presentation of her artwork for the book, and a book signing. I hope to see you Saturday!
