Story Time with Melissa Conroy

  • Buxton Books 2A Cumberland Street Charleston, SC 29401 US (map)

Attention all parents and grandparents! Buxton Books will host Melissa Conroy on October 14th for story time and snacks! 

Doll-maker Melissa Conroy makes her picture-book debut with a friendly and off-beat cast of doll characters, featured in artwork layered with photographs and illustrations. This charming story is followed by a postscript from Melissa's father, the writer Pat Conroy, which gives a personal, behind-the-scenes description of the book's characters and author.

About Poppy's Pants:
Penelope's poppy always wears khaki pants. When he finds a hole in one pair, he asks Penelope to patch it up. Penelope likes to sew . . . but this is a big job. Penelope struggles, but with a little help from her mama, she gets the job done.

We will have plenty of copies of Poppy's Pants and Melissa's coloring book for sale. Stop by for story time and stock up on signed copies just in time for the holidays- gift wrapping will be available on site!

Melissa will begin story time at 2:15 PM. We can't wait to see you there!
