It is almost back-to-school time, and the Noah and Logan tour continues to draw interest.  I am working on the third book with my mother, once again, in charge of the illustrations, and we both continue to promote the series.  We added two more libraries to our ever-growing itinerary recently.  The first was the Mexico Public Library in my hometown of Mexico, NY, and the second was the Annie Porter Ainsworth Memorial Library in Sandy Creek, NY.

The Mexico Public Library, located on Main Street in the heart of my hometown of Mexico, NY, was one of my favorite places to visit when I was younger, and I still love to stop in from time to time.  I had been looking forward to reading my Noah and Logan stories in the library that I grew up with, and now I was able to do so as part of the Library’s story hour.   As I read my stories to the kids,  I could tell from their smiles that they liked Noah and Logan’s antics.

The Annie Porter Ainsworth Memorial Library, proudly serving the people of Sandy Creek, NY, was my next port of call.  I was in this area earlier this summer for the Oswego County Fair and the library’s book sale, so I was delighted to return.  I was surprised to learn how large the Ainsworth Library is: many additional sections have been built onto it over the years, making it seem to me like a labyrinth.  Luckily, it was not too difficult to find the children’s reading room.  I read both of my Noah and Logan stories to the kids as well as the two poems I had published in UNIQUE, a yearly magazine published by ARISE.  It was a very fun event for all!

The children at both events were wonderful audiences, and both libraries’ staffs were great hosts.

I have more places to visit on the tour and more people to share the Noah and Logan series with.  My next stops include the Phoenix Public Library on September 14th at 7 p.m., the Pulaski Public Library on September 18th at 10 a.m., and the Fulton Public Library on October 27th at 10 a.m.  I would love to see you at any of these events.  Thank you for all your support!
