Children's Book Week: Sara Pennypacker - The Summer of the Gypsy Moths

Venue: St. Louis County Library | Sara Pennypacker--author of the beloved, best-selling Clementine series--returns with a middle-grade novel about the family you make. Stella loves living with Great-aunt Louise, mostly because Louise loves routine. So while Stella's mom "finds herself," Stella fantasizes that someday she'll come back to the Cape and settle down. The only obstacle to her plan is Angel, the tough and prickly foster kid Louise has taken in. But when tragedy strikes, Stella and Angel are forced to rely on each other to survive, and they discover they do have something in common: dreams of finally belonging to a real family. Left Bank Books will donate 10% of book sales at this event to Foster & Adoptive Care Solution, who will have staff on hand to answer questions.
