We are so excited to tell you that one of our favorite authors, Lauren Wolk, will be at the bookshop to talk about and sign copies of her wonderful books, Beyond the Bright Sea and Wolf Hollow!
About the books:
In the 2017 Newbery Honor winning Wolf Hollow, a young girl's kindness, compassion and honesty overcome bullying. The book is set in western Pennsylvania, where Lauren's roots run deep. Both of her parents were raised in that area, her mother on a farm and in a family that served as the inspiration for the novel.
Beyond the Bright Sea is a stunning, finely-woven tale about a young girl named Crow on a quest to find family and the missing pieces of herself on the Elizabeth Islands off the coast of Cape Cod.
Each book is appropriate for ages 10 and up and will definitely be enjoyed by adults as well.
About the author:
