7/26/2017 - Treemont the Turtle Storytime and Book Signing

Meet local author, Marya Bazzoni and illustrator, Mary Ellen Haussler

Children Pre-K to third grade are invited to join us for a special storytime on Wednesday, August 16 at 10:30 am. Local author, Marya Bazzoni and illustrator, Mary Ellen Haussler will read their newly published book, Treemont the Turtle.

The story of Treemont the Turtle helps children tackle the issues of being and feeling different. Bazzoni reminds young readers to embrace who they are and urges her audience to identify and embrace their strengths. The book is based on one of the author’s original puppet performances and will be read with the help of some of her puppets.

A discussion about the story and a craft making session will follow. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.* (*cash or check only)

Wednesday, August 16
10:30 am
Registration is required.
