Children’s Booksigning with PK Potts!

July 17 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join us Saturday morning, July 17th, for a special book-signing with South Carolina author PK Potts, visiting us from Walterboro with three young reader selections: Army the Armadillo, If the Tree Could Talk, and A Little Girl Named Sad.

Army the Armadillo

Army the Armadillo is an enchanting tale of unexpected friendships and overcoming obstacles in unusual habitats. When a veteran and his family travel from Ft. Hood, Texas to live on the spectacular Pacific coast in Coos Bay, Oregon they are startled by a strange stowaway! Encounters in a forest of furry bullies create memorable friendships between a little girl, a prickly partner and the little armored one.

If the Tree Could Talk

Sit under the shade of the Half-Way Oak, one of the Famous Trees of Texas. Listen with the little Cherokee girl as the tree weaves a tale. From acorn to oak, the spirit of the tree comes alive with stories of the Cherokee Nation and famous marshals and outlaws traveling the old Ft. Griffin stagecoach pass. The tree talks with the wind and his favorite little person, bringing him from tears to triumph recalling 200 years of history.

A Little Girl Named Sad

This young adult novel, based on a true story, is about a girl’s difficult trials encountered while growing up with teenage alcoholic parents. Sometimes brutal, often funny, it is a frank and startling account of the damaging imprints left behind on children raised by parents with addictive behavior. This journey will take readers from the bluebonnets of Texas, snow banks in Illinois, and into the beautiful forests of Oregon.

A candid chronicle of a child growing into womanhood that will encourage others who have trod this rocky path and help them to discover their own unique ways to face the obstacles from their past and the scars left behind.
