If you have little ones at home, you might be familiar with the popular, kid-approved Babymouse book series.

The Fort Worth Public Library is excited to invite children and their parents to a children’s author series event featuring Jennifer L. Holm, author of the award-winning Babymouse series, bestselling Sunny series and the Squish series.

The free event will begin at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Reby Cary Youth Library.

Holm will discuss her books, inspirations and answer questions from the audience. After the presentation, guests will have an opportunity to get photos with the author as well as purchase signed copies of her books.

Holm is a New York Times-bestselling children's author and the recipient of three Newbery Honors for her novels Our Only May Amelia, Penny from Heaven, and Turtle in Paradise. Holm collaborates with her brother, Matthew Holm, on several graphic novel series, including the Eisner Award-winning Babymouse series, the bestselling Sunny series and the Squish series, which is now a streaming show on HBO MAX. Her new novel is The Lion of Mars. She lives in California with her husband, two children and two bossy cats named Augustus and Livvie (after the Roman Emperor and Empress.)

This event is a part of the Library’s annual children's author series, funded by the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation.
