Story time with author Julie Fogliano

blue manatee welcomes author Julie Fogliano for a special afternoon story time! 

Ms. Fogliano is the author of many beloved picture books, including And Then It's SpringWhen's My Birthday?, and If You Want to See a Whale

Her new book, A House That Once Was, releases on May 1st. Featuring illustrations by another blue manatee favorite, Lane Smith, this picture book tells a delightful story about a boy and a girl who explore an abandoned house and imagine who might have lived there.

For this special event, the author will read A House That Once Was as well as some of her other picture books, and our staff will facilitate a collaborative house-building craft! 

Ms. Fogliano will also happily autograph books.

• Free author event for all ages
• You can pre-order this picture book on our website, and we'd be happy to hold an autographed copy for you.
