FRAMINGHAM – The Christa McAuliffe Library held a local children’s author fair today, October 1.

Former McCarthy Elementary School teacher James Parr was at the fair, as was Framingham Erin Dionne, with her latest book ballet ball.

“Nini hates baseball. She hates that baseball isn’t ballet. She especially hates that mom signed her up to play, but now she’s stuck with sports. Nini just can’t bring herself to try. His team begins to lose, but even his teammates’ disappointment won’t change his feelings. A pep talk from her trainer and some sparkly shoelaces help — a little. When Nini makes a winning take using her ballet moves, she realizes that change might not be so bad after all, and ballet and baseball have more in common than she thought,” according to the publisher.

G Pa Rhymes featured a trio of books.

“Kids call me G Pa, rap and rhymes flow free, I’ve got a round bald head, salt and pepper goatee, I wear a navy blue hat, goggles to see, I’ve got this little streak , which was written by me,” he rapped to SOURCE this afternoon.

Janice, author and illustrator Luedke was promoting his book The heart that fell from the sky. The book is about the Heart Heads, who venture to earth from space, on a special mission. Through their adventures, they teach us a valuable lesson about life in our hearts.

Boston author Dr. Joe was highlighting a trio of books for young people, including party animals.

“Mom didn’t have a problem with animals in the forest, but an insect or a mouse in the house scared her,” is the premise of Party animals.

The Framingham Public Library is planning another local author event in the spring of 2023, possibly featuring adult authors.
