Jo Knowles, William Alexander & Linda Urban
Saturday, April 13, 2019 – 3:00pm
Join us on Saturday, April 13th at 3:00 p.m. at Northshire Bookstore for a trio of children’s authors: Jo Knowles–Young Adult author, William Alexander–Middle Reader author, and Linda Urban–Picture Book Author.
Where the Heart Is by Jo Knowles – Ages 10-14, Grades 5-9
“In this bittersweet coming-of-age novel rooted in some of the author’s own experiences, Knowles (Still a Work in Progress) paints a down-to-earth picture of an adolescent girl who is saddled with too many responsibilities. Rachel’s anger and frustration over not being able to control her situation is as vividly expressed as her growing maturity and courage.”—Publishers Weekly
A Festival of Ghosts by William Alexander – Ages 8-12, Grades 3-7
“Witty dialogue and interesting characters make this second installment an engaging pick, though readers should start with the first book. VERDICT Readers looking to continue with the adventures of Rosa and Jasper will be delighted with new supernatural dilemmas and dark twists.”—School Library Journal
Mabel and Sam at Home by Linda Urban, Illustrated by Hadley Hooper – Ages 5-8, Grades K-3
This playful and endearing book celebrates imaginative play as Mable and Sam move into a new house and make it their own. They sail the high seas of their new home, tour the intriguing museum of their living room, journey through outer space to the safety of their own beds, and discover how far afield—and how close to home—imagination can take them. Funny and engaging, this celebration of moving in and settling in is both heart-warming and house-warming.
