David Szalay at the Learned Owl [10/24]

David Szalay will be at the Learned Owl on October 24th from 1 to 3pm. He will be signing his books, The True Story of Zippy Chippy and The Superlative A Lincoln.


Zippy Chippy is descended from the leading legends of horse racing. He is destined for greatness and glory. But...when the starting bell rings, it's anybody's guess what Zippy will do. Will Zippy go for a gentle trot around the track or stop and smell the roses? Or, perhaps, never even leave the starting gate?! What's an owner to do? Try and try again! After all, he believes in Zippy--and, besides, the horse is now a part of the family. But as Zippy's losses mount, a funny thing happens. People take notice of the hapless, cupcake-loving horse. Could it be that they're betting on Zippy to win?


Abraham Lincoln is famous for many extremes: he was the tallest president, who gave the greatest speech and had the strongest conviction. But did you know that he was also the most distracted farmer, the best wrestler, and the craftiest storyteller? Nineteen poems share fascinating stories about events in Lincoln's life, while history notes go even deeper into how he excelled.
