Meet the Author

Did I say whisper?  I meant shout!
I have some fabulously exciting news!  I have been holding it in for a long time, waiting for the perfect moment, and now is the time to let you all in on the secret.  Someone special is coming to the Roselle Public Library.  Someone wonderful and good and I just can't wait.  So who is it, you ask?  Well, come closer my friends and I will whisper it to you.  GAYLE ROSENGREN!!  Oh, whoops, I didn't mean whisper at all.  I meant shout it from the rooftops - that is just how excited I am about this visit!  Gayle Rosengren is the author of the wonderful book, What the Moon Said, and she is coming here to the library to talk to all of you on September 29th.  That means that we are less than a month away from meeting someone famous, someone talented, and someone who knows a thing or two about writing.

What the Moon Said is by far one my favorite books that I have read this year, and rates highly on my all-time favorite list as well.  You can read a glowing review of the book here.  I can't think of anything more thrilling than reading a book that you love, and then meeting the author and having the chance for them to sign your book, or ask her questions, and just get to know her.  Gayle will spend the evening with us, speak about her writing process, life during the Great Depression, writing stories from real life, and superstitions.

So what are you waiting for?  Stop in today and pick up a copy of What the Moon Said, and get reading!  Here are the details about Gayle's visit:
The Meet the Author program will take place on September 29th at 6:30pm.  The program is open to children grades 2-5.  Registration opens on September 15th.
