The wonderful Phantom Tollbooth turns 50 this year, and to celebrate the book and its creators, author Norton Juster and illustrator Jules Feiffer, Books of Wonder is hosting a discussion, Q&A and book signing Saturday, November 12, from noon to 2pm. Esteemed children's book historian Leonard Marcus will moderate the discussion, and all three will take questions from the audience afterward. If you want to get your book signed by Juster and Feiffer, come early, as numbers will be assigned to families for the book signing in the order in which they purchase books at the store. There's not only a commemorative 50th anniversary printing of the book but also a brand-new annotated version penned by Marcus that fills diehard enthusiasts in on various backstories and references. Sat Nov 12 noon--2pm. Books of Wonder. Free. Ages 8 and up.
