The Pudd’nhead Parade is the kid-centric part of the Pudd’nhead Festival and takes place this Saturday, September 25 from 10:30 to noon!
This event will be outside, rain or shine. Everyone will arrive, don a sparkly crown, and enjoy a lively presentation from local children’s author Valerie Bolling. All will culminate with a rousing parade around the library yard led by Pudd’nhead founder Michael Ian Black. Everyone will get a goodie bag of snacks and crafts to take and enjoy at home!
Valerie Bolling has been an educator for 28 years, and her debut picture book, LET’S DANCE!, was published in March 2020 and won SCBWI’s Crystal Kite Award in 2021. She has two books scheduled for release in 2022 (TOGETHER WE RIDE and CITY FUN), five more slated for 2023, and one for 2024. Valerie and her husband live in Stamford and enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, going to the theater, and dancing.
