Norton Juster is Coming Soon!

AN INCREDIBLY SPECIAL EVENING
with
NORTON JUSTER
and special guest
LEONARD MARCUS

Friday evening
December 9th
7 p.m.
at
Presser Hall, Agnes Scott College


No, he's not Santa Claus.  It just kind of feels that way.

We couldn't think of a better present that a visit by Norton Juster, the author of The Phantom Tollbooth.  As an incredibly special extra gift, Norton will be joined on stage by Leonard Marcus, perhaps the most knowledgeable person alive on the subject of children's literature and editor of The Annotated Phantom Tollbooth.

This is the culmination of our On The Same Page community-wide reading program that was originally designed to be a Decatur thing, but has caught the imagination of schools and libraries around DeKalb County as well as in Gwinnett County, Atlanta, and Cobb County.  We couldn't be more thrilled.

This is a ticketed event.  Tickets -- limit two per person and absolutely free -- can be obtained in person at Little Shop of Stories.  Tickets are now also available over the phone.  We'll hold them at will-call until the event.
