SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17; 2 PM

HELEN KLEIN ROSS will introduce her novel, The Latecomers. The novel is based on historical research and begins in 1908 where we meet 16-year old Bridey who runs away from her small town in Ireland with her same-age sweetheart Thom to begin their future in America. But when Thom dies suddenly of ship fever on their ocean crossing, Bridey finds herself alone and pregnant in a strange new world. It is then that her strength of will, determination, and the kindness of others are needed to survive.

Told in interweaving timelines and rich with detailed history, romance and dark secrets, the story spans a century of American life and reminds us that we can never truly leave the past behind.

Ms. Ross will give a slide presentation highlighting the customs and artifacts that were part of everyday life at the turn of the previous century. She has also written another novel, What Was Mine. LITTLE, BROWN & COMPANY

A favorite author and illustrator, JAN BRETT will introduce her beautiful new picture book, The Snowy Nap. We expect Hedgie to be with her! She will give a presentation and a drawing demonstration followed by the book signing portion of the day.

In The Snowy Nap,
we find that as winter approaches, our favorite hedgehog, Hedgie, tries to stay awake and not go into his burrow so he won’t miss out on all the fun his friends will be having in the winter-time snow. But when a snowstorm starts, Lisa luckily finds him and brings him inside so he gets to see the wonders of winter from inside the cozy house. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE

Jan will sign any new books purchased at the event. If time permits, she will personalize books, and sign a favorite book from home.
