Room of One's Own

The Wisconsin Book Festival is excited to be partnering with A Room of One's Own Bookstore to welcome Stephan Pastis, creator of the popular Pearls Before Swine comic strip and Timmy Failure, a hilarious book for kids! Stephan will be giving a sidesplitting slideshow for his latest Pearls Before Swine collection, Pearls Falls Fast, for a reading and book signing.


Please keep your hooves, paws, and snouts inside the ride at all times--- the Pearls Before Swine gang is back! Pearls Falls Fast: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury continues the saga of lovable Pig, cynical Rat, and the whole crew with two years' worth of the award-winning, New York Times best-selling comic strip Pearls Before Swine. This treasury includes strips from the collections Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Rat's Wars, along with new commentary from cartoonist Stephan Pastis himself, showcasing even more of his cynical wit and humor than the papers can handle.
