Events for Book Readings and Signings

Author Event: Bobbie Pyron

Local author Bobbie Pyron is coming to this month’s Great Reads. This is a program for caregiver and child, so be sure to read Pyron’s book “Lucky Strike” before you come. “Lucky Strike” is about Nate Harlow’s desire to win a prize, get picked first, call a coin toss correctly — anything to have some luck. But when Nate survives a lightning strike at the mini-golf course, his luck begins to change. But is there room for his science-and-logic-loving best friend Genesis Beam in Nate’s lucky new world? Free and open to the public — tickets are NOT required. Learn more about Great Reads: slcolibrary.org/le/lelp


Guest Author Mikey Brooks

Ten-year-old twins Ethan and Emmy’s parents have never told their kids what they do for a living. Then just before Halloween, Ethan, Emmy, and their best friend Jax discover a HUGE secret: could their parents actually be . . . witch hunters? Meanwhile at school, a new team of glamorous lunch ladies arrives on the scene, serving meals that taste way too good to come from a school cafeteria. There’s only one logical explanation: they’re witches, and the meals they serve are spiked with a dangerous potion! Why have witches come to Roosevelt Elementary? Ethan and Emmy have only one option if they want to save their school and find their parents: become witch hunters themselves. Join us Saturday afternoon, April 29th, for a release party for Mikey Brooks' new book, The W.H.O. Files: Potions in the Pizza, featuring a special storytime reading, book signing, activities, and even some snacks! We'll start at 1 p.m.
