Children's Author Visits SOKC

Melonhead coverThe premise behind book #1 of the Melonhead children's book series is:
In the Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Capitol Hill, Lucy Rose's friend Adam "Melonhead" Melon is a budding inventor with a knack for getting into trouble. He enters a science contest that challenges students to recycle an older invention into a new invention. This little contest opens the door for non-stop adventure for the young Melonhead.

Katy Kelly, is the author of the popular "Melonhead" series and she'll be visiting the Pioneer Library System in October!

She will visit the SOKC Library on Sunday October 7, to talk about her new book and sign copies of the books in the "Melonhead" series.

Her talk will take place at 2:30 p.m. Copies of the book will be available for purchase with cash only.

This is her only stop in our 3 county area - so we hope to see you and your family at this fun author event!
