Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes Katherine Applegate to the store as our guest bedtime book author on Friday, November 7th at 6pm.
Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Katherine Applegate will be here to read you a bedtime story. Get cozy in front of the fireplace, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies, get your books signed, and then head home for bed.
Katherine Applegate's new book is Ivan: The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla, a picture book companion to The One and Only Ivan. It's the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, the Shopping Mall Gorilla who lived alone in a tiny cage for twenty-seven years in a Washington State shopping mall before being moved to Zoo Atlanta after a public outcry. He was a beloved celebrity at the zoo, which houses the nation's largest collection of western lowland gorillas. Ivan was well-known for his paintings, which he "signed" with a thumbprint. Katherine's many other books include the Roscoe Riley Rules chapter book series, the picture book The Buffalo Storm, the award-winning novel Home of the Brave. She lives in California with her husband and two children.
