Patricia Waugh Book Signing
Saturday March 7, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PMAfter 3 years of hard work and revision, longtime resident and local author, Patricia Waugh, has published her first book for children entitled “Annie Pearl”! The idea for the book came to her when she dreamed of a hectic day her mother (the books namesake) might have experienced if she was left home alone in charge of eleven siblings. Both author and illustrator, Patsy Isenberg, will be at the library to give a special reading of the book, followed by a meet and greet where copies of this lovely book will be available for purchase.
