The team behind the children’s book, When I Grow Up are excited to announce that Dante Washington of the Columbus Crew, Lizard McGee of Earwig and Director Derek Talib and Actor Jose Byers of I-71 Films will present and perform at the When I Grow Up Launch Party.


Taking place at Friends Theater at Upper Arlington Library and presented by Cover to Cover Children’s Books, the event celebrates the release of When I Grow Up, the book of cool careers that kids can really picture themselves in.


Written by the Central Ohio area team of author, Casey Bowers and illustrator Alex Clark, When I Grow Up is a children’s picture book that depicts multiple careers and lets kids picture themselves in the roles, too.


“We’re really proud of this book and this event. We think everyone is going to enjoy it and we’re excited to showcase some of the careers in the book with the help of our special guests and friends,” said author, Casey Bowers.


For Columbus Crew SC fans young and old, it’s a chance to meet Columbus Crew SC alum and MLS commentator, Dante Washington and hear his story.


“I’m looking forward it”, said Washington. “It’s a great kids book, a great event and I’m excited to share my experience as a professional soccer player with the kiddos.”


Lizard McGee, the leader of Columbus band, Earwig will perform a short family-friendly acoustic set, as well.

The When I Grow Up Launch Party happens on February 3 from 2-4 p.m. at the Upper Arlington Library.
