Penguins with (Book)People Problems
Fishsticks and queso in the bookstore? Yep, and drinks too. BookPeople of Austin welcomes author and artist Mary Laura Philpott for a signing of the adorably weird little gift book about modern adulthood, PENGUINS WITH PEOPLE PROBLEMS. Don't miss the warm welcome from Wendi Aarons and Laura Mayes, hilarious local writers from popular blog "The Queso." RSVP here!
ABOUT PENGUINS WITH PEOPLE PROBLEMS
Stress-eating after a breakup? Frustrated by the cost of a good cocktail? Stymied by the weirdness of abstract art? These penguins share your pain. The "random penguins" are a lineup of quirky, lovable weirdos with minds of their own. They understand the agony of social awkwardness, the power of the perfect smoky eye, and the arm- (or wing)-flapping terror of having a bee in the car. In fact, these winged characters get into the same sticky situations we all do. They are Penguins with People Problems.
So meet your favorite new flightless friends. They're brutally honest (except when they're lying), comically insecure, and totally relatable.
