"Merry Moosey Christmas" Book Launch Shindig ~ This year, Rudolph just wants to enjoy the holiday without having to work. So he convinces Santa to accept a substitute. The search for the perfect replacement results in an eager and resourceful moose, who knows just how to use a headlamp and a GPS. But on Christmas Eve, Rudolph worries: Will Santa and Moosey be able to get all the presents where they need to be? Author Lynn Plourde will read her latest book "A Merry Moosey Christmas". Afterwards, illustrator Russ Cox will do a drawing demonstration. There will be some arts & crafts, book sales & signing, and of course, cookies!
