Edward Hemingway In-Person Book Launch of PIGEON & CAT

Tuesday, June 28, 2022 - 4:00pm

We're so excited to welcome local author Edward Hemingway to launch his newest picture book for young readers Pigeon & Cat. Eddie will read and sign copies of this heartwarming story about being houseless in the city, and the unexpected friendships that arise from hardship.  


In an abandoned city lot, Cat lives alone in a cardboard box. He leaves only to find food. One day, Cat discovers an unbroken egg too beautiful to eat. Soon, out pecks Pigeon, and they become fast friends. Cat is happy to share his box with Pigeon. But when Pigeon flies far away from where they live, Cat must brave the city in order to rescue his friend. This journey will forever transform his understanding of home. This heartwarming story explores unlikely friendships, the creative spark within us, and how to give comfort and kindness in small, impactful gestures. It is also a celebration of urban community.

Edward Hemingway is the acclaimed creator of many popular books: Tough Cookie: A Christmas StoryField Guide to the Grumpasaurus, and Bad Apple: A Tale of Friendship.
