There's never been anyone quite like Edward Gorey! His sweetly sinister images mixed with his special brand of nonsense have enthralled and appalled people around the world for decades. Why would anyone write stories like that?
Children's author Lori Mortensen couldn't resist his lure, and has created an amazing picture book, Nonsense: The Curious Story of Edward Gorey, that shares the marvel that is Mr. Gorey. Join us to celebrate the publication of this fabulous, fantastic picture book on Saturday, May 9, 11 am-1 pm.
Lori Mortensen is the award-winning author of more than 100 books, including Away with Words: The Daring Story of Isabella Bird, If Wendell Had a Walrus, Chicken Lily, Mousequerade Ball, and Cowpoke Clyde & Dirty Dog! She lives in the foothills of northern California with her family and their cat, Max. Max likes to sit where he doesn't belong (like Lori's desk) and works his way into many of her stories!
