Do you have a reluctant reader in your life? It’s time for them to meet Kit, a young girl who can’t stand reading—until her friends drag her to the library one day and discover a massive, scaly, fire-breathing secret! The Dragon in the Library is chock-full of surprises, magic, storytelling, and wizards disguised as librarians, and at this interactive event kids have to invent the perfect spell to keep the magic going.
Join author Louie Stowell as readers encounter crazy creatures, create magical artwork, wind their way through foreign dictionaries, and unleash their inner wizards just in time to save the librarian.
A 45 minute talk/workshop followed by book signing.
