December 14, 2022
Startling busy municipal offices and leaving a trail of laughter and cheer, the beloved children’s story book character Pete the Cat made a surprise visit to North Miami City Hall today in advance of tonight’s author visit at North Miami Public Library. Towering over many excited employees in his signature button-down yellow shirt with his dreamy orange eyes, the lovable blue feline was a welcomed break in a jam-packed workday.
“North Miami employees and even visitors at city hall were happy to see Pete the Cat this morning,” NoMi Library Director Paul Bazile explained. “He gave us a sneak peek at what to expect from tonight’s visit with him and book series author Eric Litwin.”
The # 1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of the Pete the Cat series, Eric Litwin, will share his read aloud stories as well as his very own the Nuts, Groovy Joe, and the Poop Song. Families will have a rare opportunity to take colorful pictures with Pete the Cat and Litwin as well as get books signed by the multi-talented author.
Hosted in part by the Friends of the North Miami Public Library, the Children’s Book Author Visit with Litwin and Pete the Cat, is tonight, December 14, 2022, beginning 6PM at North Miami Public Library, 835 NE 132 ST, North Miami, FL 33161.
