And Dad’s a Vampire?!

Great lesson: sign up for your local public library’s newsletter! This is how I learned about a Book Release Party for LUMBERJACKULA, a hilarious middle-grade story about a boy with a lumberjack mom, a vampire dad — a boy who just wants to be a dancer.

The event is Tuesday 19 July 2022 from 3 – 5 p.m. MT in the William F. Hayes Memorial Auditorium in Boise’s Main Library downtown with help from Rediscovered Books. Read more about it on the Library!’s website.

Author Mat Heagerty and his family moved to Boise in the fall of 2021. You can read this interview on IdahoPress.com … or visit Mat’s website.

As you can see from the header graphic, this isn’t Mat’s first book — just his most recent, and we look forward to many more!
