Author to visit library, remotely
Members of the Fractured Fairy Tales Book Club at the public library will get to speak with the author of their featured book next month, but he will not be there in person. Instead, the library has arranged for Christopher Healy to meet with the club members – children in roughly the third through sixth grades and their parents – by Skype. Healy will participate in a half hour question-and-answer session, part of the club’s overall hour-long monthly meeting on Sept. 29, according to Leslianne Costello, the youth services librarian. The club’s September book is Healy’s “The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom.” “I’m so excited to kick off the new year of our Fractured Fairy Tales Book Club with a Skype meeting with this author,” Costello said. She learned of the opportunity to host the Skype visit when she was exploring activities for the September meeting and noticed on Healy’s website that he is available to meet with groups through that remote technology. Costello said the club welcomes new members and that the Sept. 29 event is open to all.
