To show her support for local bookstores during this challenging time, #1 New York Times bestselling author/artist Jan Brett is offering a special pre-order campaign where for the first time, she will personalize over 3,500 copies of her new picture book, "Cozy," including orders from Oblong Books and Music in Millerton & Rhinebeck, New York.

Cozy is the softest musk ox in Alaska, with the warmest fur you ever did feel. When a storm hits while he’s separated from his family, he starts to feel lonely–but not for long. As the snow piles up, animals start to notice just how warm and cozy Cozy really is! One mama lemming has a bright idea . . . maybe the best place to spend the winter is under Cozy’s fur!

Suzanna Hermans from Oblong Books and Music joins us with this week's Book Picks list.
