Pajama Party & Stuffie Sleepover at {pages}

A special {pages} event is coming for children on Friday, March 24 at 5:30 p.m. We invite children to wear their pajamas and bring a favorite stuffie to enjoy a special storytime, cookies and juice, and then tuck the stuffies in for their overnight stay at {pages}. We wonder what the stuffies will be up to all night long in a bookstore? We know there will be some shenanigans, cozy cuddles, and lots of books to read!

On Saturday morning at 9:30 am, stuffies can be picked up while children enjoy a very special storytime with children’s author, Benson Shum. Benson will share his Anzu books and provide a drawing demonstration while children enjoy doughnuts with their stuffies.

Photos will also be displayed of what the stuffies were up to all night! To make a reservation for your child, the fee is $5.00 and you can register HERE. Purchase one of Benson’s Anzu books to pick up at the event and have him sign and personalize it for you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Benson Shum is a children's book author and illustrator. The idea that an image or painting can evoke emotions and movement is what brought him to the world of picture books and animation. Benson uses watercolor, ink and digital tools to create his illustrations. His book, Anzu the Great Kaiju received a starred review from School Library Journal. Both Anzu the Great Kaiju and Anzu the Great Listener was selected for 2022 & 2023 Kid's Indie Next List Recommend by American Booksellers Association. Alex's Good Fortune was also selected for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library 2022 & 2023. Benson is also an Animator at the Walt Disney Animation Studios, where he was a part of such films as Frozen, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Moana, Frozen 2 and Encanto.
