Are you an Avi-ophile? (lover of books written by Avi). If so, you are in luck!!
Beloved author, Avi, will be making an appearance at Wenatchee Public Library on Tuesday, October 25 at 7:00, so mark your calendars now! This event will feature a presentation given by Avi followed by a booksigning. A Book for All Seasons bookstore will be on site selling books.
Avi has written more than 70 books for young people including the popular “Poppy” series, “Nothing But the Truth”, “True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle”, and “The Seer of Shadows”. He has received two Newbery honor awards and the Newbery Medal for “Crispin, Cross of Lead” (What’s the Newbery Medal? Click here http://tinyurl.com/4usuwp.)
He is known for writing in many different genres including: historical fiction, humor, mystery, and adventure stories. My personal favorite is “The End of the Beginning” which is a sweet story of a snail and an ant who go on an adventure – to the end of the branch! It is told with droll humor in the style of “Winnie the Pooh”. Another favorite Avi book is “Traitor’s Gate” told in a Charles Dickens style and is full of mysterious doings and suspicious characters set in 1849 London. Fourteen year old John sets out to solve the mystery and free his father from debtor’s prison.
Look for Avi’s newest book “City of Orphans” at your public library branch.
