Two Special Author Readings At Northeast Library Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 4pm at the NE Library branch (6801 35th Avenue NE), Jeanne Birdsall will read from The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, the third book in her award-winning Penderwicks series.

Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing courtesy of the University Book Store.

The SPL website description says of the book:
When summer comes around, Skye is left as OAP (oldest available Penderwick) -- a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. It's a rollicking ride as the Penderwicks continue their unforgettable adventures in a story filled with laughs and joyful tears!

And in the evening from 7-8:30pm, author Chris Cleave will be reading from his book, Little Bee, which is the current choice of reading for Seattle Reads.

The SPL website description says of the book:
Little Bee tells a story by two narrators, both heartbreaking and heartwarming, about how their lives are forever changed and linked when they meet one fateful day on a beach in Nigeria: Little Bee, a young Nigerian refugee in the UK, and Sarah, posh British magazine editor and mother of four-year-old Charlie, who refuses to take off his Batman costume.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the reading.  All library copies of the book have been checked out!

For more information on author readings, call the Northeast Branch at 206-684-7539.
