Children’s book author Jana Laiz, writer in residence at Herman Melville’s Arrowhead, will read from and talk about recent books such as Blanket of Stars and Billy Budd in the Breadbox: The Story of Herman Melville, as well as two books in development for film, Weeping Under This Same Moon and A Free Woman on God’s Earth: The True Story of Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman, The Slave Who Won Her Freedom.
A writer with a purpose, Laiz’s goal is to “change the world one book at a time.” A great event for the whole family!
This event is timed so that if you are participating in the Sandisfield Library’s “READING IS OUT OF THIS WORLD” program, ending with a Celebration Party with Ed the Wizard and Alien Balloon Twisting at 1 PM, you can come on over to the Arts Center to keep the reading fun going!
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Sandisfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. This support will allow us to provide some of Jana’s books for the Sandisfield Library and the Farmington River Regional School!
Ticket link is just to see more about the event, you don’t need tickets. The event is free.
