Originally planned as part of the 2021 Virginia Festival of the Book, this event was rescheduled to May 13 due to unforeseen circumstances.

“[In DJ Funkyfoot! Butler for Hire] readers will come to admire the dapper dog’s (mostly) unflappable ability to carry on—or, at least, make a hasty exit.”―Booklist

“This is a simply beautiful and beautifully simple book. Leffler, an animator, muralist and art teacher, has created a visually evocative and emotionally-charged book in Once There Was a Boy.“—Kids’ Book Review
