Free Community Performance by New York Times Bestselling Author Eric Litwin



Greenville, SC, July 27, 2015 - Get ready to sing, dance, and fall in love with reading! Fiction Addiction and The University of South Carolina Upstate are bringing Eric Litwin to Greenville for a FREE 45-minute performance featuring his new book, The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants (Little, Brown, hardcover, $18.00, on sale 9/22/15) on Friday, September 25th, at the University Center Greenville entrance to McAlister Square (225 S. Pleasantburg Dr., Greenville), just outside the USC Upstate office.


This event is free and open to the public, but a purchase of The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants at the event is required in order to join the signing line. Mr. Eric will also sign copies of The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House and one additional Pete the Cat book (that he wrote -- first four only) per person. Mr. Eric will personalize only copies of The Nuts books.



The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants

Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants is the second book of the Nuts series from the creative genius behind the #1 New York Times bestselling Pete the Cat books!


Little Hazel Nut wants her family to sing and dance with her, but they're just not listening! Mama Nut is buzzing around the house, Papa Nut has his nose stuck in a book, and Wally Nut is up to who knows what. Who will get everyone singing and dancing? Why...their super-cool, super-hip, disco-dancing Grandma Nut, of course!


Eric Litwin's expert use of repetition, call-and-response, and rhyme, combined with Scott Magoon's clever and hilarious illustrations, offers an unforgettable interactive reading experience inviting readers young and old to join in on the fun.


The read-aloud functionality and light animation are sure to have readers singing and dancing along with this nutty family!
