Massachusetts author Jacqueline Veissid will join us for Saturday Morning Storytime, reading her newest release, Caspian Finds A Friend.
Jacqueline has two releases this year, the first being Ruby’s Sword, which came out in October. Called “a charmer” by Kirkus Reviews, Ruby’s Sword introduces readers to Ruby, who is always racing after her big brothers. But no matter how hard she tries, she can never catch up. Then one day, she discovers some sticks in the grass. Not just any sticks—swords! And suddenly the world is her kingdom.
Caspian Finds a Friend is Jacqueline’s second book, set for release on October 15th. Caspian lives in a lighthouse surrounded by a cold gray-blue sea. Every day, he watches, wishing for a friend. But no one comes. So, Caspian decides that wishing is not enough. What follows is a friendship story that is tender and warm.
These cozy books are just perfect for an autumn Saturday!
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
