Join us in the children's library for a visit from local author, Calef Brown! Calef has written many books for children and will be reading selections from his works. 

Beginning in1998, I’ve written and illustrated thirteen books for children including Polkabats and Octopus Slacks, Dutch Sneakers and Fleakeepers, Tippintown, Soup for Breakfast, Hallowillloween, We Go Together!, Boy Wonders, Pirateria, and Flamingos on the Roof – winner of the Myra Cohn Livingston poetry award, and a New York Times bestseller. Hypnotize a Tiger – Poems About Just About Everything, which was published by Christy Ottaviano Books / Henry Holt in 2015, is my first aimed at middle-grade readers, and recently won a Lee Bennett Hopkins honor award and The Lion and the Unicorn Award for Children’s Poetry. My latest book, The Ghostly Carousel, was published by Lerner in August of 2018, and my next one – UP VERSES DOWN is coming in June of 2019 from Christy Ottaviano Books / Henry Holt.
