Catherynne Valente POSTPONED UNTIL OCT
DUE TO WEATHER CONCERNS, CATHERYNNE VALENTE'S VISIT IS POSTPONED UNTIL OCTOBER, DATE AND TIME TO COME
Glass Town is a marvelous, magical world invented by sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Ann, and their brother, Branwell, in which Branwell's toy soldiers battle real battles with the Duke of Wellington and Napoleon Bonaparte. But when the "Beastliest Day" comes and Charlotte and Emily must go off to school, the siblings find themselves about the Glass Town Royal express gliding through fields that look exactly like Aunt Elizabeth's handkerchief, where Officer Crashy looks suspiciously like one of the toy soldiers and where mere words make things come to life, and the mysterious Grog can bring life into those once thought lost. Fun and adventure with bits of history tossed in, Glass Town Game has already received starred reviews and is children's literature at it's best.
Catherynne Valente, also the author of the magnificent "Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland" series will be at The Country Bookshop Wednesday, Sept 13th at 4pm.
This event is free and appropriate for children age 8-14
