"The Tryceratops" Book Event with Author John Edwards, May 16th at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes author John Edwards, as he discusses his new children's book "The Tryceratops".

***Saturday, May 16th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

From Mr. Edwards-

I wrote the book as a message for my kids. Often we encourage children to try new things, but we forget to let them know that sometimes trying new things doesn’t go as well as we’d like. Yet, that’s okay because regardless of the outcome, we always learn something from trying new things. So, thanks to the fun and vibrant illustrations of Erin Boe, I have a group of adorable Tryceratops experiencing both pleasant and not so pleasant outcomes as they try new things like rolling sushi, riding a roller coaster, and trying new food.

About the Author:

After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a master’s degree in professional writing, author John Edwards packed whatever would fit into
his Corolla and made the trek from Pittsburgh to Hollywood. Since that fateful decision, he’s played numerous roles from production assistant to location manager to studio executive (assistant). He’s even been a farm hand in downtown Los Angeles, writing all the while. He has written books for Walt Disney’s Princess and Planes franchises; episodes of Tom & Jerry for Warner Bros. Television Animation; and videos and books for John is the proud father of Fletcher, Grace, and Demaris; the trio who first inspired “The Tryceratops,” but who are now way too cool to read anything below a fifth grade level. He is currently working on a fifth grade level adventure story and expects to complete it just in time for their college baccalaureate.

We hope to see you!
