Meet Award Winning Alabama Author, Irene Latham, in the SPL Children's Annex March 21, from 3:30 till 4:30

Irene Latham is the author of many books, including two novels for children, Leaving Gee's Bend and Don't Feed the Boy. Winner of the 2016 ILA Lee Bennett Hopkins Promising Poet Award, her poetry books for children include Dear Wandering Wildebeest, When the Sun Shines on Antarctica, Fresh Delicious and Can I Touch Your Hair? (with Charles Waters), which was named a Charlotte Huck Honor book and a Kirkus Best Book of 2018. Irene lives on a lake in Alabama where she does her best to “live her poem” every single day by laughing, playing the cello, and birdwatching.

Stop by the Springville Public Library Children's Annex on March 21, form 3:30 to 4:30, for the chance to meet Mrs. Latham and purchase a signed copy of her books. This "Meet the Author" event is the perfect opportunity for families to meet an award winning Alabama author. Young writers will be inspired by this unique experience.
