Join us on Sunday, June 26 at 2pm as we celebrate the launch of local author Laurie Trumble Davis' debut picture book, The Unsinkable Gus Davis.

  Please purchase the book in advance and Laurie will be happy to sign and or personalize the book for you. You can pick up the book beginning June 21, at the event or anytime thereafter.

This event will be held at the Book Shop (in the rare book room or weather permitting, the back courtyard). 

Gus Davis is a French bulldog who thinks he can do anything—even swim. Bean is Gus’s human best friend who thinks bulldogs aren’t designed for the water.

Who is right?

It turns out, they both are!

All it takes is a persistent bulldog and a creative human friend to prove that, with a little practice and adaptation, anything is possible. The Unsinkable Gus Davis is a playful story about figuring things out, staying safe around water, and laughing along the way!
