Join us at Northshire Bookstore when we welcome legendary author-illustrator Tomie dePaola presenting his gorgeous and contemplative new picture book, Quiet, which reminds us that mindfulness—being quiet, still, and present with one another—is a very special thing.

Everything is in such a hurry, busy as busy can be.
The birds are flying so fast, the dragonfly is zooming over the water—even the trees are waving their leaves.

So what if we sit here, you next to me…and we can just be?
