Gutman has an entertaining lecture planned for children, focusing on his books and how he writes them. There will also be a question and answer period. The program is aimed at children in ages 2 and up.

Following his presentation, he will be signing copies of his books. Attendees can bring their own books; copies will also be available for purchase at the event.
