Maple Street Books hosts release of three new books from Johnette Downing

The Maple Street Book Shop will host the release of three new books from Johnette Downing at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 26, at the Maple Street Book Shop (7529 Maple Street).

Downing will release Petit Pierre and the Floating Marsh, which features a young pelican searching for his proper home. She will also debut the board book Today is Monday in Louisiana and Down in Mississippi, in which Downing pays homage to the cultural legacy of Mississippi in this charming book that incorporates many of its native flora and fauna. Her delightful text, adapted from a traditional song, presents a lyrical and visual tribute to the many iconic images and symbols to be found in the state.
