FRAMINGHAM – The Christa McAuliffe Library hosted a local children’s author fair today, October 1.
Former McCarthy Elementary School teacher James Parr was at the fair, as was Framingham Erin Dionne, with her latest book Balletball.
“Nini hates baseball. She hates that baseball is not ballet. She especially hates that Mom signed her up to play, but now she’s stuck with the sport. Nini just can’t bring herself to try. Her team starts to lose, but not even her teammates’ disappointment will change her feelings. A pep talk from her coach and sparkly shoelaces help–a little. When Nini makes a game-winning catch using her ballet moves, she realizes that change might not be so bad after all, and ballet and baseball have more in common than she thought,” according to the publisher.
G Pa Rhymes was highlighting a trio of books.
“The kids call me G Pa, Rap and rhymes flow free, I have a round bald head, Salt and pepper goatee,I wear a navy blue hat, Eye glasses to see, I have this little series,That was written by me,” he rapped to SOURCE this afternoon.
Author and Illustrator Janice Luedke was promoting her book The Heart That Fell Out of The Sky. The book is about the Heart Heads, who venture down to earth from outer space, on a special mission. Through their adventures, they teach us a valuable lesson about living in our hearts.”
Boston author Dr. Joe was highlighting a trio of books for youths, including Party Animals.
“Mom didn’t have a problem with animals in the forest, but a bug or a mouse in the house freaked her out,” is the premise of Party Animals.
The Framingham Public Library is planning another local author event in the spring of 2023, perhaps with adult authors.
