You do not want to miss our next story time LIVE on our Facebook page (facebook.com/FABFulton): we’re welcoming local author Gilbert Ford, who will lead a LIVE virtual broadcast reading of an exciting new book, The Mysterious Messenger!
It’s an epic journey that combines bookish mystery with the literary movement of the Beat poets and art and jazz history, as readers (and listeners) follow the adventures of 11-year-old Maria, a clairvoyant young sleuth.
A Pratt graduate and Clinton Hill neighbor, Gilbert Ford has written and illustrated many New York Times best selling young adult novels and award-winning picture books. This latest work, The Mysterious Messenger, was released just this summer, and marks Ford’s debut as a middle grade novel author-illustrator! And, the book is available locally at Greenlight Bookstore, who will also provide five copies of the book for a drawing — simply post a comment during the reading and you’ll be entered to win!
