Second Story Press will be giving away copies of their 2004 picture book Mom and Mum Are Getting Married! to librarians at this year's American Library Association Conference on Saturday, June 28 in Anaheim in celebration of California's newly legislated legalization of gay marriage. Author Ken Setterington will be on hand signing copies and available to talk about the book and its impact on the children's literary community, from the controversy it generated when first published to the relevance it has in light of this new legal decision.

The book tells the story of young Rosie and her two mothers. When they tell her they are going to get married, Rosie can't wait to start planning the big day. Rosie has so many questions. Will she get to be a flower girl? Can she get a new dress? Will there be food and a fabulous wedding cake? At this party, family, friends and fun come together for a joyous celebration of love in a changing world. Author Ken Setterington is the Toronto Public Library's Children and Youth Advocate. His awards include the Ontario Library Association's Librarian of the Year and the prestigious Toronto Arts Award for Writing and Publishing. He has authored several other children's books, a play, and regularly reviews and recommends children's literature. Ken has served on the Siebert, Newbery and last year's Caldecott committees.

The American Library Conference is being held at the Anaheim Convention Centre, and Second Story Press can be found in booth #2653.
