Event description: Meet children's book author Artie Bennett, best known for penning "The Butt Book," for a reading and signing of his "number two" book, "Poopendous," followed by a fun activity.

In the new picture book, Bennett delivers the inside scoop on every type and use of poop using hilarious verses and eye-popping illustrations by Mike Moran. The book relates the many, often remarkable uses of poop throughout the world while paying homage to those that produce it, from cats to bats to wombats. So pick up your pooper-scooper and come along for a riotously rib-tickling ride. You just may agree that poop is truly quite...poopendous!

Visit www.artiebennett.com for even more of the scoop on poop, as well as some fun butt-related stuff, including some fascinating butt trivia.
