Local author Shannon Wiersbitzky will join other authors Saturday in West Chester at the Festival of Children's Books. The festival will be held at Chester County Book and Music from 2 to 5 p.m.
The Malvern Patch event listing has all the details, including names of other authors attending:
Among those attending will be Debbie Dadey, author (with Marcia Thornton Jones) of the wildly popular BAILEY SCHOOL KIDS series, as well as the exciting new series, MERMAID TALES; Mônica Carnesi, whose first book, LITTLE DOG LOST, earned a starred review from the notoriously hard-to-please Kirkus Review; and Matt Phelan, author and illustrator of the award-winning THE STORM IN THE BARN, among many other titles.
Wiersbitzky, an East Whiteland resident who works for Vanguard when she's not writing, will be there to promote and sign copies of her book, The Summer of Angels and Hammers.
The festival could be one of the independent book store's last events—the owner has plans to close or downsize the store in the near future.
