Appearing Saturday Nov. 1 from 10 - 3 will find author Marilyn A. Hudson and illustrator Molly Lemmons on hand to introduce their new book, ELEPHANT HIPS ARE EXPENSIVE. 
This children's book is based on true events of 1949 in Oklahoma when local children joined forces to raise money to bring a new elephant, Judy, to the local zoo.   Molly Lemmons was one of "Judy's Kids." Her whimsical drawings reflect the flavor of the times in delightful images.
