Booksigning with NYT Best-Selling Children’s Author Melinda Long
December 7, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A special event indeed on Saturday, December 7 (rescheduled from November 23 after Melinda’s injury!) when we host NYT best-selling children’s books author Melinda Long to Main Street Reads!
Her books on hand for signing will include Art Smart, Science Detective, How I Became a Pirate, Pirates Don’t Change Diapers, and, apropos to the season, The Twelve Days of Christmas in South Carolina.
Melinda Long began her writing career on a rainy day when she was six. Her mother, tired of hearing how bored Melinda was, told her to write a story about Yogi Bear and friends. She even gave Melinda a typewriter to use. It was so much fun, Melinda just kept writing. Now it’s one of her favorite things to do. Melinda lives in South Carolina not far from two pirate hangouts. She enjoys reading, acting, and visiting schools to talk to kids about writing.
