Newbery Medal winning author Kate DiCamillo will be sharing the stories behind the creation of her early chapter book series, the original "Mercy Watson", and the follow up series, "Tales from Deckawoo Drive". We will also be celebrating the publication of the final book in the Mercy Watson series! 

Mercy is selfish and impulsive, but no matter how much trouble she gets in, Mr. and Mrs. Watson continue to love her and see her in the best possible light. Young readers love to join along in her hilarious adventures, taking comfort in the fact that their parents and guardians will love them no matter what as well. BYOBT – Bring Your Own Buttered Toast!
