FREE Book Talk & Signing with Caldecott Medal-Winning Author and Illustrator Dan Santat at Fiction Addiction


Fiction Addiction invites all elementary school children and their parents to a fantastic FREE event with Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator of The Adventures of Beekle, Dan Santat. He will take readers on the road trip of a lifetime when he discusses his new picture book, Are We There Yet? (Little, Brown & Co., hardcover, $17.99, on sale 4/12/16), at a book talk and signing at Fiction Addiction on Thursday, April 14th, at 6:00 pm.

*Note: This event is free and open to the public, but a purchase of Are We There Yet? from Fiction Addiction is required in order to join the signing line. Mr. Santat will sign other books as long as they are accompanied by at least one copy of the new book. Books will be available for sale prior to and at the event. Books may be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.


"Are we there yet?" Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride -- and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you'll never look at being bored the same way again.

Let's face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this book, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backwards -- into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where -- or when -- he'll end up.


About the author:
Dan Santat is the Caldecott Medal-winning and New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend and the graphic novel Sidekicks as well as the illustrator of many other picture books, including Oh No!: Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World by Mac Barnett, Crankenstein by Samantha Berger, and Carnivores by Aaron Reynolds (a 2015-16 South Carolina Picture Book Award nominee). He is also the creator of the Disney animated hit, The Replacements. Dan lives in Southern California with his wife, two kids, and various pets.
