Calling all readers from ages 8 to 12 and their families! On Sunday, October 28th from 1:00-3:00pm, in partnership with Elm Street Books, the Library will be hosting a Middle Grade Author Extravaganza! Eleven nationally published children’s authors are coming out to New Canaan for the day and will be discussing their work and themselves at an informal panel discussion from 1:00-2:00pm and from 2:00-3:00pm there will be an opportunity for a meet, greet, and book signing with each of the authors upstairs in the children’s section of the Library.
