Local author, David Drennan, will be available to sign his new children's book, SLUDGEFOOT! Here's a sneak peak . . .
“Should see that dude walk.  Each step is measured, definite, taken with confidence.  Truly this is the dominant buck of this area.  He is the king and he knows it….”
Roger Drennan, circa 1980
