CowParade Wisconsin: Booksigning

From --

CowParade: Wisconsin
Meet the Artists Booksignings at Barnes & Noble West and East!
Madison, Wisconsin

Join us Tuesday, August 29 at 7:00 p.m. and get your copies of the gorgeous limited-edition book CowParade Wisconsin: The Cows Come Home to America's Dairyland. The book releases in mid-August and will feature the 101 artistically transformed cows grazing across the Madison area this summer. Since it is a limited-edition title, customers are encouraged to reserve their copies now at their neighborhood Barnes & Noble.

At this event, customers will have an opportunity to meet some of the CowParade artists and create the ultimate keepsake or gift by asking them to sign the page in the book featuring his/her cow! For your convenience, this event will take place at the same time at both Barnes & Noble Madison locations.

This Barnes & Noble event is also a bookfair fundraiser to help build the new American Family Children's Hospital in Madison. When customers present a bookfair voucher at the cash registers the day of the event, a percentage of their total purchases will be donated to the hospital in the form of a check. Vouchers will be available to download at, and will also be available upon request from the cashiers.

Through the month of August, both of the Barnes & Noble stores are also proud to display a "mini-moo" from the "Cows in Schools" art education program. These "calf-sized" cows were painted by students from area high schools, and will also be included in November's charity auction. Children are also invited to pick up a blank cow to color and return for display at Barnes & Noble.

This event is free and open to the public.
