Meet Author Avi 5/12

The Sidney Library is extremely excited to host award winning author Avi on Tuesday 5/12 at 6:30pm. Avi has written dozens of books for younger and middle grades including the well-known True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. He will be speaking here in our Smart Community Room.

Avi will entertain with readings of his work, discuss his writing life and how some of his characters came to be, and finish off with a book-signing. We will also have copies of several of his books available for sale for $5-$10, including his newest book Catch You Later, Traitor.

We encourage you to click here to see the official flier for the event and share it with your friends!
