Story time with author Sally Derby!

Thu. June 29th @ 10am

Meet author Sally Derby as she reads and signs her newest picture book, A NEW SCHOOL YEAR.

In a unique narrative, readers meet a diverse group of six children ranging in age from Kindergarten through fifth grade. With nerves and excitement each child gears up for a new school year by hustling in the morning, meeting new teachers and new classmates during the day, and heading home with homework and relief by day’s end.
