Avid Bookshop presents Caldecott award-winning author and illustrator Matthew Cordell in celebration of his new book, King Alice, on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 6-7pm at the Prince Ave. bookshop. There is no admission charge.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Alice and her family are stuck indoors on a snowy day. Alice loves to read, and when her dad suggests that she make her own book, she snaps out of her "I'm bored" mode and makes up a story that lasts 'til the lights go out later that night.
Here is a book that celebrates books, reading, and an imaginative way that one family handles being housebound.
