George Shannon event at Adams Elementary School

He'll be reading from STORIES TO SOLVE: FOLKTALES FROM AROUND THE WORLD. He will also discuss his other books, including MORE STORIES TO SOLVE: Fifteen Folktales from Around the World, TOMORROW'S ALPHABET, WHITE IS FOR BLUEBERRY, and THE SECRET CHICKEN CLUB.

It's at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 at Adams Elementary School, 6110 28th Ave. NW in Seattle, and is sponsored by Secret Garden Books.

The public reading is the final event of Adams Elementary School’s third annual six-week-long ADAMS READS THE SAME BOOK program. In late December, the Adams PTA purchased paperback copies of Stories to Solve for all 400 students to read with their families.

As part of the book reading, librarian Marlene Friend has invited Adams students to create a “book reaction”—a painting, poem, skit or other artistic expression. These will be presented and on display the night of the reading.

The community is invited to attend the reading, Q&A, and book signing. Free.
