Here’s a very cool break for book and musical fans to take Tuesday afternoon: Rain Taxi is pleased to present a delightful event for readers of all ages, as bestselling author Gregory Maguire (yes, of Wicked fame!) and award-winning British illustrator David Litchfield discuss their new book, Cress Watercress (Candlewick Press). Maguire started writing Cress Watercress to show younger kids that yes, moods are strong, and yes, moods change. The result—replete with Maguire’s trademark wit and wisdom and Litchfield’s luminous art—is a tender meditation on growing up, moving on, and flourishing wherever we find ourselves. At this very special virtual launch, both creators will be in conversation together with renowned author Ann Patchett. You can also pick up the book at Magers & Quinn. TUES, 3 PM. Free, registration required.
