Author/Illustrator Abby Hanlon Visits BNS This Thursday

12 03 2013


We are delighted to announce that  Abby Hanlon will be visiting the library on Thursday, March 14! She meet with the BNS first grade classes to talk about her new book, Ralph Tells a Story.

Ralph Tells a Story is about a boy struggling to get over a serious case of writer’s block. With a little help from his his teacher, who tells him “stories are everywhere,” and a darling bunch of supportive classmates, he finds his writer’s voice.

Hanlon has received universally glowing reviews of her debut book. Kirkus Reviews calls Ralph Tells a Story,  “an engaging mix of gentle behavior modeling and inventive story ideas that may well provide just the push needed to get some budding young writers off and running.”

Copies of Ralph Tells a Story will be available in the Library and will also be featured on the BNS iStore.

How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg

12 03 2013

Funny, informative, and gross, the author takes readers on a chronological graveyard tour of famous people starting with King Tut and ending with Albert Einstein.   Readers will feel relieved to live in the world of good hygiene and modern medicine.  The brief biographies are as enlightening as they are entertaining though many of the people are well known, such as Pocahontas, Mozart, and Columbus.  “Further reading and surfing” at the back of the book are there for those who want more.
