The duo will be presenting their new collaboration, a children’s book entitled Which Puppy? Inspired by President Obama’s promise of a puppy to his daughters, Kate wrote this charming story of animals across the globe vying for their shot at the White House.

    Book signing with both guests.

    Family Day activities continue until 4:00 pm

Kate Feiffer is a writer, filmmaker, and mother.  The New York Times Book Review raved of her 2005 debut Double Pink: “Feiffer has an economy of style and understated wit that reminds me of her father, Jules, and also of the way children really speak.” She is also the author of Henry The Dog With No Tail, (her first collaboration with Jules Feiffer), President Pennybaker, as well as the recently published picture book, My Mom Is Trying To Ruin My Life, and the middle grade novel The Problem With The Puddles

Jules Feiffer is one of the most influential editorial cartoonists of our time, as well as a playwright, a novelist, a screenwriter, and both an author and illustrator of children’s books. Mr. Feiffer’s many awards and honors for his work include a Pulitzer Prize, an Academy Award, and an Obie Award. His books for children include the Phantom Tollbooth, written by Norton Juster; The Man in the Ceiling; and Bark, George.
