Summer Reading Events:
On Saturday, February 4 from 1:00 til 2:30, author Laura Dewire will visit the Peebles Library to sign copies of her book “A Corner of Heaven,” illustrated by Kailen Offutt. Kailen will join Laura to share about this children’s story, based on true life events. “When Kailen was four years old, her baby brother Kulen was born sleeping, and never made it home to join his three big sisters. A Corner of Heaven shares a family’s journey through expectation and joy, to heartbreak and loss, and back to hope and happiness.” Now nine years old, Kailen illustrated “A Corner of Heaven,” which provides a resource for families to help their young children understand, discuss, and process loss and grief. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book benefits Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, a nonprofit organization that provides remembrance photography to grieving families. Meet author Laura Dewire, who lives in southern Ohio, and illustrator Kailen Offutt, and purchase signed copies of their book. For more information, call Sherry at 937-587-2085. This event is sponsored by the Peebles Magazine Club.
