Book Talk by Peter Huggins and Mary Ann Casey

The public is invited to a book talk by Peter Huggins and Mary Ann Casey, the author and artist of Thibodeaux and the Fish, on Thursday, June 29 at 4 p.m. at Pebble Hill.

Thibodeaux and the Fish is the story of a young boy who lives in bayou Louisiana and dearly loves going on adventures with his dog Sally. He has heard the tales about Pantagruel, an uncatchable catfish of legendary proportions. Thibodeaux and Sally think they just might be the ones to finally catch that big old fish but who really catches who? Children will love going along on the adventure.

Peter Huggins is a poet and writer of fiction for children. He has published six books of poems, a picture book, and a novel for younger readers. His Trosclair and the Alligator was selected by the Bank Street College of Education for its Best Children’s Books 2007 and by the Cooperative Children’s Book Center for its Choices award.  He has recently retired from teaching in the English Department at Auburn University where he served for thirty-one years

Mary Ann Casey is a writer, painter, and sculptor from Auburn. Mary Ann’s work has been displayed all over the Southeast, including the Malone Gallery of Art at Troy State University and the African-American Museum in Dallas, TX.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn.
