News from Eerdmans . . .

  • Eerdmans Bookstore was thrilled to welcome Gary Schmidt and Elizabeth Stickney last night to talk with readers about their new book, Acceptable Words: Prayers for the Writer. For all those unlucky enough not to be able to meet them in person, we’ve posted a video interview on YouTube.
  • To celebrate her new picture book Bow-Wow Wiggle-Waggle, we’re partnering with author/illustrator Mary Newell DePalma to give away a bouncy red ball to anyone who records and shares a quick video of a read-aloud of the book. Visit the Curious City blog to learn more.
  • Watch Leon the potty-training penguin (and his tired mom and dad) come to life in our cute new animated book trailer for Émile Jadoul’s All by Myself!.
  • Our hearty congratulations go out to Myles Werntz, Adam Marquez, Jennifer Holberg, and Jessica Sweets, whose poems earned them the top four places in our Book Spine Poetry Photo Contest — and gift certificates to Eerdmans.

. . . and elsewhere.
