Every family has its characters. But in the case of the Roy family, pretty much everyone is a bit off their rockers. In the second book of local author Robin Russell's fun and funny series for young readers, their quirky adventures continue as the family's oldest child narrates a new round of crazy antics, calamity, and shenanigans, catches us up on our favorite characters from the first book, introduces newcomers like Our Gay Uncle Charlie and Priscilla the Pun, and perfectly captures the chaos of a home suddenly filled with teenagers. As the fun new book about "Those Roys" comes out, we're excited to celebrate its release at this reading and signing with Russell.
Robin Russell, along with other local writers, will be available to sell books, sign books and talk about writing. Other attendees include Margaret Read MacDonald, Wendy Wahman, Anthony Doerr (author of 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner All the Light We Cannot See) and Newbery Honor author Kirby Larson (Dash, The Fences Between Us).
