Library to Host Abilene Author for Storytime Session, July 12

Post Date:06/28/2017 9:11 AM

Your South Branch Library is thrilled to announce a second special storytime event where we'll be inviting in another local author on Wednesday, July 12 at 10:45AM.  Designed for kids of all ages, our guest author will be Caitlin McCulloch who will be on hand to share her delightful children's book titled "Francine's New Name."  In this book, Francine is a little monster with a unique name.  With a little help from her mommy, Francine learns how important it is to be proud of being herself.

McCulloch's book was written for a broad range of youth, ages 3-10, with easy to comprehend language and a story that will resonate with readers/listeners of all ages.  Having studied English and Communications at Wayland Baptist University, she believes strongly in reading, as well as using children's literature to encourage relationship-building between parents and kids.  With one "little monster of her own," this poet, witty word girl, and authoress extraordinaire has always dreamt of being an author and has hopes to publish more Francine books in the future.

We encourage everyone to come out to the South Branch Library (4310 Buffalo Gap Rd, in the Mall of Abilene) on Wednesday, July 12 at 10:45AM and be introduced to both the author, and Francine, in her first storytime presentation at the Abilene Public Library.  For more information, contact Alyssa Crow at 325-698-7565.
