Authors at local libraries for Children’s Book Week

The local library system has announced that two popular auth­ors of books for kids will be here during Canadian Child­ren’s Book Week.

Claire Eamer will be visit­ing the Arthur branch on Nov. 14 at 10:30am.

Sigmund Brouwer will be visiting four WCL branches:

– Nov. 20 (a PD Day), at Drayton branch, 10:30 am; at the Harriston branch, 2:30pm; and

– Nov. 21, Elora branch, at10:30am; and the Marden branch, at 2:30 pm.

The sessions are free. Space is limited, so people are en­couraged to come early.

Eamer is known for her sci­ence and history books for kids. In Super Crocs and Monster Wings, she links modern ani­mals to their ancient relatives.

The highly engaging Spiked Scorpions and Walking Whales looks at how many modern day animals came from the sea. Trait­ors’ Gate: and Other Door­ways to the Past invites kids to take a walk in time by passing through remarkable entrances of kings, saints, and slaves.

Brouwer has over three million copies of his books in print, including mysteries and stories about Sports. His titles are popular with reluctant read­ers, and in his presentations he tries to inspire kids who have not yet discovered the joys of reading.
