I just recently completed two more fantastic stops on the summer promotional tour for my Noah and Logan children’s series of e-books.  I read my stories to sizable groups of children at the Oswego City Public Library in Oswego, NY, and at the Central Square Library in Central Square, NY.  I have visited both of these libraries before, and I took great pleasure in reading to the kids at both locations.

I came to know the Oswego City Public Library very well during my college days; I used its many resources for numerous college assignments.  Some of my research excursions took me to the library’s children’s section, containing a healthy combination of all-time classics and modern selections.  I am happy to report this was still the case when I returned to share the Noah and Logan series with a group 0f excited children.  There was a bit of chatter among the children before I started reading, particularly about dinosaurs.  In one of my stories, Noah and Logan share toy dinosaurs with each other; I was glad to see that this detail made a connection to a subject the kids were enthusiastic about.  Afterward, I signed autograph books the children had been given as part of the library’s summer reading program.  It was a rare treat and great fun for me to sign their books.  The children also gave to me a “Thank You” card for giving my presentation.  A very thoughtful gesture!

The Central Square Library has a wonderful children’s section as well.  The children who came to the library’s story hour were practically beaming as they colored for a few moments and then settled down for my stories.  I could tell they liked having such creative stimulation, which put them in a good mood for my Noah and Logan tales.  They were very attentive, and I think we all enjoyed story time at the library!  I was also pleased that my aunt and uncle stopped by to hear my presentation along with Ms. Vicki Affinati from ARISE.  It was very nice of them to come and stand by me!

I felt that both of these events were tremendously successful.  I had such a great time with the kids at the libraries; they have lively imaginations and made for wonderful audiences.  I thank them as well as the librarians who allowed me to share a little about myself and my work.

I cannot wait to see what the other events on this summer tour will be like.  I have two big stops coming up. First, on August 14 at 11:00 a.m., I will be sharing my Noah and Logan stories for “Story Time” at the Mexico Public Library at 3269 Main St., Mexico, NY.  Then, I will be participating in “Story Time” at the Annie Porter Ainsworth Memorial Library at 6064 South Main Street, Sandy Creek, NY, on August 18 at 4:30 p.m.

See you soon!
