It's raining, it's pouring,The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head, and he went to bed,
And couldn't get up in the mornin'.
Famous singer/songwriter Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary fame will be back in Madison at the First Congregational Church for a mini-concert and book signing for It's Raining, It's Pouring.
One of the most beloved children's songs gets a rollicking picture book treatment and a gorgeous musical interpretation by trio Peter, Paul & Mary. Featuring witty and whimsical art by the renowned illustrator Christine Davenier, this stunning new book offers plenty of fun, whether it's raining or not.
Complete with a CD featuring Peter, Paul & Mary's marvelous version of the title song, along with Peter singing "Believe Town" and Noel Paul Stookey performing "Glory of Love," this beautiful picture book is perfect for rainy days, bedtime, or any time. Read more about the book here.
Tickets are $5.00 and can be used towards the purchase of the book. Please call the store at 203-245-3959.
The Church is handicapped accessible.
Located in the shoreline town of Madison, Connecticut, RJ Julia Booksellers has always been a place of inspiration, information, and excitement.
RJ Julia opened 21 years ago as an independent bookstore whose mission was, and is, to be a place where words matter, where writer meets reader, where the ambiance and selection and merchandising of books creates an atmosphere that is welcoming and presents the opportunity for discovery. Ultimately we are fiercely committed to putting the right book in the right hand.
We are extremely proud of having won major awards nationally, statewide and locally, including in part: Publishers Weekly Bookseller of the Year, Lucille Pannell award for bookselling excellence, Connecticut Magazine Best Bookstore, Connecticut Retailers Award for Community commitment, Advocate's Best Bookstore and the New Haven Business Small Business Award.
We host over 300 events a year. Authors from all over the country—some even from overseas—visit the store to inspire, educate, and entertain us.
In addition to a busy events schedule, we pride ourselves on having a knowledgeable staff, opinionated book selections (look for those little white "shelf-talker" tags), and a passion for reading. You can be sure that when you pick up any book at our store, it is one that we have hand-selected with specific reading audiences in mind.
