After her ride on the Storytime Trolley to read from her picture books, Mary Casanova will stay at the store for a meet and greet/signing for her new Young Adult novel, Ice-Out. Stop in to meet her and get your signed copy!
About the book: In 1920s Minnesota, life is hard for nineteen-year-old Owen Jensen and his family after their father dies but gets considerably worse when Owen becomes involved in the deaths of a sheriff and deputy.
About the author: Casanova grew up in a family of ten children in St. Paul, Minnesota. In a bustling camp-like atmosphere, Casanova found that writing became her voice. "Words are my paintbrush," she explains, "my way of exploring the world around me." Now, with 31 books published and many more under contract and forthcoming, she divides her time between writing and traveling. Nationally and internationally, at schools and conferences, Casanova shares her love of writing and reading with children and adults.
