DEC 10th – STORYTIME with Chris Cander’s THE WORD BURGLAR – Meet the author, Story reading and craft will be Thursday, December 10, 2015 – 3:45 – 4:30 PM at the Bellaire Library. Autographed books will be available for sale. Bring your children and join us for this unique experience. You can learn more about the book here chriscander.com/childrens-books and also thewordburglar.com
THE WORD BURGLAR was published in 2013 by Bright Sky Press, and won the silver Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for reading skills/literacy. It’s the story of a boy who desperately wants to read, but when nobody teaches him, turns to a life of word-stealing crime. It’s a tongue-in-cheek tale that celebrates the power of words and reading, and is appropriate for emerging and established readers alike.

A sincere thank you to the family and friends of Louise Ware (1927-2015) for donations made to Friends of the Bellaire Library in her memory. Louise was a City Councilwoman before she became the first woman Mayor of Bellaire. Interwoven in her political career, she was invovled in many local organizations including Friends of the Bellaire Library. She is remembered as an incredibly loyal volunteer who made every book sale and annual meeting as long as she was able.
