LBH: Book Release Event! Ben Barrowman signs his newest book in the Parmesan Pig series, Parmesan Pig Saw What Was Needed, Saturday, October 1st at 3pm

The Capital Region’s premier independent children’s book store will graciously host the release of the second book in the series: “Parmesan Pig Saw What Was Needed.”

Celebrate the new school year and stop by with young ones in your circles. Grab a copy and have it personally signed by the author. Both book 1 and book 2 will be readily available.

ADDITIONALLY - Half of all proceeds will be donated to the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), to support young type-1 diabetic children.

While book 1 in the series focuses on mental health themes, book 2 explores the social scene. Parmesan Pig learns from the perspective of others as they consider the differences between WANTS and NEEDS, while setting inspirational examples. As children return to school in the fall of 2022, this sequel hopes to inspire them with fun/creative/rhyming stories of perspective, understanding, care, respect, appreciation of diversity, and friendship.

See you then!


Let’s all call it HAPPY.
You may have heard it before,
But it’s not very simple.
There’s a lot to explore.

Introducing Parmesan Pig, a kind-hearted, supportive friend that readers will find delicious to meet. When Spaghetti Spider, Marshmallow Mouse, and Taco Turtle need help with HAPPY, Parmesan Pig sniffs out just the right flavor of support. Each friend is faced with a different situation where certain HAPPYingredients are missing. Luckily, Parmesan Pig is someone they can trust, offering a new point of view. Sprinkling her savory advice, she provides understanding and hope, when her friends need it most.
