MO – Tek: The Modern Cave Boy Signing

000000000000000_mcdonnell_tek

Patrick McDonnell (creator of Mutts) appears at the St. Louis County Library on Sunday, October 6, 2016 at 4:00 PM to sign his new book Tek: The Modern Cave Boy!

ABOUT ‘TEK’:
From a beloved, bestselling Caldecott Honor recipient comes a hilarious reminder of how technology can take us backward … all the way to the times of prehistoric man!

Tek is a cave boy in love with tech. His tablet, video games, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family, and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH”! Can anyone convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?

In addition to an imaginative and totally relatable story, ‘Tek’ also offers a distinctive design — including a tablet-shaped cover and a password “screen” — that’s sure to pique the interest of even the wariest young readers.

000000000000000_gly-paths-portals-secret-coders

Cartoonist Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints, American Born Chinese) appears at Joseph-Beth Booksellers on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 7:00 PM to sign the second volume of SECRET CODERS!

There’s something lurking beneath the surface of Stately Academy – literally. In a secret underground classroom Hopper, Eni, and Josh discover that the campus was once home to the Bee School, an institute where teachers, students, and robots worked together to unravel the mysteries of coding. Hopper and her friends are eager to follow in this tradition and become top-rate coders. But why are Principal Dean and the rugby team suddenly so interested in their extracurricular activities? From graphic novel superstar (and high school computer programming teacher) Gene Luen Yang comes the second volume of Secret Coders, “Paths & Portals,” a wildly entertaining new series that combines logic puzzles and basic programming instruction with a page-turning mystery plot!
