Upcoming Events
Prankster Workshop
Come learn some quick, easy pranks for
April Fool's Day!
February 3 @ 5:45
If you are a parent reading this, we are definitely not teaching your kids pranks. It's a ... study session for a ... test.
Yeah, a BIG test. No need to worry!

The Big Event:
Mac Barnett & Jory John

Come meet the co-authors of The Terrible Two.
February 3 @ 6:30
These real-life friends and all-around hilarious humans know a thing or two about pranks — they literally wrote the book on them! They'll talk about their new series-starting novel and sign copies. Books will be available for purchase, courtesy of Boswell Books.

February 13 @ 3:00
