Roycemore library will host author Lindsay Currie this Tuesday, October 10, 12:30-1:30pm

Parents are welcome to join us as author Linday Currie visits the school to talk about her book "The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street." After moving to chilly gray Chicago from warm sunny Florida, a  preteen overcomes fear to solve a century-old mystery.

It's a great mood-setter for Halloween!
