Longing for a lazy Sunday afternoon? Take it slow with a new kind of story time featuring J. Otto Seibold reading Lost Sloth.

Enjoy a soda or sloe gin fizz while your kids sprawl on the floor, getting in touch with their inner folivore (leaves not included). Learn about the secret lives of sloths, and seek out some of our slowest exhibits. Sit back for the breathless tale of a sloth winning a shopping spree—if he can make it to the store in time. “Hurry, Sloth!”

Stay for a Q&A hosted by McSweeney’s McMullens publisher Brian McMullens, and meet the author in person at a book signing located in the Pier 15 lobby, just outside the Exploratorium Store.

J. Otto Seibold is a self-taught artist from Oakland, California, best known as the author and illustrator of many renowned children’s books, among them Olive, the Other Reindeer (with Vivian Walsh). Lost Sloth marks his twentieth anniversary in children’s books.

McSweeney’s McMullens publishes great new books—as well as new editions of out-of-print classics—for individuals and families of all kinds. Each book is produced with special care, to remind readers of just how delightful it can be to sit down and read a book.
