Book-signing event set Thursday with books to be ordered by Friday

NISSWA — Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi book “Dream Big, Little Pig!” will read her book at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Turtle Town Books & Gifts, formerly Rainy Days Bookstore in Nisswa. Afterwards she will do a book-signing. To ensure that people have a copy of her book, they need to order one by Friday by calling the store at 963-4891.

“Dream Big, Little Pig!” features Poppy the Pig, who has big dreams, lots of them. But following her dreams isn’t always easy, and whenever Poppy thinks it might be time to give up, her family reminds her to “dream big!” While on a “pig’s day out,” she has so much fun ice-skating that she doesn’t even notice those around her who think pigs can’t skate and without even knowing it, she achieves her dream while doing something she loves! 

Yamaguchi, a world champion, knows about dreaming big. The motto “always dream” serves as her personal inspiration, as well as the name of her charitable foundation for children.
