Lumberjackula Book Release Party

Lumberjackula Book Release Party

Don your best flannel shirt and sharpest vampire fangs and join author Mat Heagerty, Boise Public Library, and Rediscovered Books for an epic party to celebrate the release of Mat’s new book, Lumberjackula.

For fans of The Okay Witch and Fake Blood, this hilarious middle-grade graphic novel follows a half-vampire, half-lumberjack boy who feels torn between his parents and just wants to be a dancer. To summon the confidence to pursue his dreams, Jack will have to embrace every part of himself—his lumberjack toughness, his vampire eeriness, and most especially his awesome dance moves.

Games, snacks, an author talk, and a comics-making session for kids will be just part of the fun. A spontaneous dance party might even break out. Rediscovered Books will have copies of the book available for purchase.

Mat Heagerty is a comic book writer, rad dad, and all-around chipper dude living in Boise, ID. Mat’s dyslexic, and struggled a bunch in school, but now he writes rad comics like LumberjackulaMartian Ghost Centaur, Unplugged and Unpopular, and the forthcoming graphic novels Jaywalker (2022) & Indoor Kid (2023).
