Author Night for Young Readers

Jennifer Maruno will take you back to 1960 when two unlikely middle-grade classmates try to establish a summer friendship.  Her newest novel, UNTIL NIAGARA FALLS is about the dares, delights and heartbreaks that this mismatched friendship brings. Brenda, a cautious, polite, only-child, is fascinated by Maureen’s wildness and her unruly family.  She feels she should show Maureen the proper way to behave, but the only thing she gets from the relationship besides the chicken-pox is the feeling of walking a tightrope. Jennifer will be showing what it was like to grow up without cell phones, computers or Netflix. Using photographs, local settings and landmarks, historical figures, popular products and the Bick’s Pickle Contest, she will take you though the era of popular comic books and child catastrophes. Questions will be welcomed.
