Vroman's Celebrates 125 years with special anniversary events

Viet Thanh Nguyen, Ellison Nguyen, Thi Bui and Hien Bui present and sign, Chicken of the Sea

Viet Thanh Nguyen, Ellison Nguyen, Thi Bui and Hien Bui  book signing November 30th at 10:00am

A band of intrepid chickens leave behind the boredom of farm life, joining the crew of the pirate ship Pitiless to seek fortune and glory on the high seas. Led by a grizzled captain into the territory of the Dog Knights, they soon learn what it means to be courageous, merciful, and not seasick quite so much of the time.  A whimsical and unexpected adventure tale, Chicken of the Sea originated in the five-year-old mind of Ellison Nguyen, son of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen; father and son committed the story to the page, then enlisted the artistic talents of Caldecott Honor winner Thi Bui and her thirteen-year-old son, Hien Bui-Stafford, to illustrate it. This unique collaboration between two generations of artists and storytellers invites you aboard for adventure, even if you're chicken. Maybe especially if you're chicken. (McSweeney’s)

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's.
