Summer Reading Kickoff at Main Library

Lauren Baratz-Logsted writes The Sisters Eight
series with her husband Greg and daughter Jackie.
We are so excited about the Summer Reading Kickoff happening this Saturday at the Main Library. The authors of The Sisters Eight series will be joining us to talk about writing their popular children's books. Behind this wonderful series is a talented family, including Lauren Baratz-Logsted, her husband Greg Logsted, and their daughter, Jackie Logsted. Jackie, age 10, will talk about what it's like to be a published child author with her parents. They will discuss the series, answer questions, and sign copies of the books, which will be available for purchase courtesy of bbgb children's bookshop.

The Sisters Eight is a blend of comedy, mystery, fantasy, and adventure. This fabulous series follows the Huit girls, 7-year-old octuplets, along with their eight talking cats. When their parents vanish, the girls begin a thrilling adventure to find them, and in the process they discover that they each have their own superpower. It is a brilliant mix of reality, humor, and fantasy, with a good dose of girl power. We love that these books provide great examples of healthy self-esteem for children. They're written for kids ages 4-8 (early chapter books), but your whole family will fall in love with the characters. We're willing to bet that you won't be able put these books down.

So come to the library on Saturday to meet The Sisters Eight authors and to sign up for Summer Reading. You'll have chances to win prizes and be involved in fun events all summer long. See you this Saturday!
