Join the Book Cellar in a virtual event with author Daniel Pinkwater and artist Aaron Renier as they talk about their new book, Crazy In Poughkeepsie. 

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Mick is a good kid, but maybe he can use just a little guidance. But it’s unclear who will be guiding whom, when Mick’s brother comes home from Tibet with a weird guest: Guru Lumpo Smythe-Finkel and his dog Lhasa. Mick embarks on something like a quest, roaming the suburbs with the oddest group of misfits, including Lumpo and Lhasa; graffiti-fanatic Verne; and Verne’s unusual friend Molly. Molly is a Dwergish girl (don’t worry if you don’t know what that is yet), and there are a lot of things she’s still figuring out.

Along the way, the gang will get invited to a rollicking ghost party, consult a very strange little king, and actually discover the truth about Heaven. Or a version of the truth anyway, because in a Daniel Pinkwater tale, the truth is never the slightest bit like what you’re expecting.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Daniel Pinkwater is the author of more than one hundred beloved books, including The Neddiad, Lizard Music, The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death, Fat Men from Space, Borgel, and picture books, including The Big Orange Splot. Pinkwater was a popular commentator on National Public Radio and has been spotted in the pages of the New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, Saveur, OMNI, and many other publications. He has received the Blue Ribbon for Fattest Author at the Dutchess County Fair five times. Pinkwater lives with his wife and artistic collaborator Jill, a world-class genius rough collie called The Peach, and certain cats in a centuries-old farmhouse in New York’s Hudson River Valley.
