AuthorTalk with PEZ author Shawn Peterson

December 5, 2016:  Shawn Peterson will discuss his passion for all things PEZ and the history of the company that makes it in a presentation based on his new book “PEZ: From Austrian Invention to American Icon” at the Agawam Library on Monday, December 5, 2016 at 7:00.   In addition to PEZ’s colorful past, Peterson will share his own story, from initially picking up a few PEZ dispensers at a flea market near his home in Kansas City, to later parlaying his interest into his dream job in Connecticut.  He has a wealth of knowledge to share on the topic, from insights on some of the unusual or most sought-after collectibles to insider tips on collecting.

                  The public is invited to bring a favorite PEZ dispenser to the event and can take home a free PEZ candy sample!
