Strolling of the Heifers - next Saturday!

Mark your calendars. There will be hundreds of cows, me reading Punk Farm books and a punk band dressed like farm animals, rocking out.

Sat, June 7
Parade starts @ 10:00 AM
JJK reading/signing @ 1PM
Strolling of the Heifers
Brattleboro, VT
Reading, Signing and a Punk Farm cover band will perform

"Hood’s Livestock will be rockin’ with book-related activities for kids, including performances, readings, drawing lessons, and treasure hunts. Nationally acclaimed book authors and illustrators, Scott Nash, David Elliott, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Suzy Becker, Lori Korcheck and Marshall Taylor will be on hand to read to and greet their fans."

This event is being put together by Kristin Cappy of Curious City/Lunchbox fame, so it's sure to be killer.

Here are a few pics of previous "Strolls" found via the program's website.
