11/09/16-Laura Bantly Book Signing

The Readfield Community Library invites you to join us on Wednesday, November 9th at 3PM for a reading and book signing of “How Ladybug Bear Came to Maine.” Yarmouth author, Laura Bantly, will share some insights and background that led to the writing of her picture book, written especially for 4 to 9 year olds.

“How Ladybug Bear Came to Maine” is a toy black bear’s adventure that is hopeful, frightening, and finally fulfilling, and will resonate with any reader who has ever struggled with being different. She travels from a toy workshop in West Virginia to a gift shop in Michigan, where it seems no one wants her. At last she is discovered and sent to a perfect home in Maine. Illustrations are beautifully done by Maine artist Thomas Block, a retired art teacher from the Boothbay area. The book was published by Maine Authors Publishing in Thomaston.

Laura Bantly’s background includes teaching elementary school, opening a private kindergarten, and owning Stepping Stones Country Day School in Falmouth for 15 years. She has been a summer resident of Readfield for the past 35 years.

Can’t make the book signing? Visit the author’s website www.laurabantly.com if you would like to order the book.
