Meet the author!

Free and open to the public. Doors open at 2:30 pm. 

Inprint invites you to enjoy an afternoon with bestselling author and syndicated cartoonist Stephan Pastis. Mr. Pastis will share his fourth book in the popular Timmy Failure series, Timmy Failure: Sanitized For Your Protection, for ages 8 -12. After his presentation, he will take questions from the audience, followed by a book sale and signing*, giving fans a chance to visit with him. Books will be available for sale at the event through Blue Willow Bookshop.

Pastis’ first book in the series, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, was published in 2013 and debuted at #4 on The New York Times Middle Grade Best Seller list. The book spent more than 25 weeks on the list and was also #1 on the American Booksellers Association Indie Next List.  Following the adventures (or misadventures) of an inept kid detective and his polar bear sidekick, The Sunday Times of London says, “This ironic, knowing, inspired book will prompt constant laughter,” and author Jeff Kinney declares, “Timmy Failure is a winner!” In 2014, two more books were released, Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done and Timmy Failure: We Meet Again, both receiving wide acclaim.

Timmy Failure: Sanitized For Your Protection comes out October 2015. Kirkus Reviews writes, “Cartoonist Pastis brings his intelligent yet clueless, arrogantly overconfident detective back for a fourth nonsensical (and nonexistent) case…Abundantly illustrated fun.”

Pastis is also the creator of the syndicated comic strip Pearls Before Swine, which appears in 650 newspapers internationally, including the New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, and Houston Chronicle. He has twice won the National Cartoonists Society Newspaper Comic Strip Award.
