Children’s author to read at The Green Free Library
The Green Free Library will host a free children's author event for youth 12 and under and their parents on Saturday June 3rd at 1PM.
Author Kevin Coolidge will read from “The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet Bigfoot” to children at the Green Free Library (134 Main St. in Wellsboro).
Last year, Coolidge published the first two books in his new series set in Wellsboro and Tioga County, Pa. “The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet Bigfoot” is the first book in his series about the three raccoon brothers who become ninjas. “The series is for the 7- to 10-year-old reluctant reader who loves action, adventure and creatures whose existence has yet to be proven, like Bigfoot,” said Coolidge.
"I'm really looking forward to this event," says Coolidge. "This is the library I frequented through all the stages of my life, from a child to an adult. It's a great library for such a small town and we are lucky to have it."
In the second book, the raccoons meet the “Weird & Wacky Werewolf.” In the third, they learn “The Secret of the Canyon,” in the fourth, meet “The Thunderbird” and in the fifth are involved in “The Catmas Caper.” The sixth book titled “The Totally Ninja Raccoons and the Secret of Nessmuk Lake” was just released in May.
The first five of the series are in the library's circulation, and all six books will be available for purchase after the presentation. Kevin will happily sign and personalize copies bought at the event, or purchased elsewhere.
