The New York Times No. 1 best- selling children’s author/illustrator, Judy Schachner, will do a book reading and presentation in Degnan Hall, on the property of St. Joseph Church, 3255 Concord Road, Aston, PA, on Saturday, June 1 at 1 p.m. Degnan Hall is across the street from the Aston Library. Ms. Schachner’s Skippyjon Jones’ books tell the story of a Siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua. His character has delighted children for nearly a decade.
Following the reading, Ms. Schachner will be available for an author book sale and signing. Also after the reading, children’s activities highlighting cats and dogs will include face painting, animal balloons, cookies and other games.
Admission to the event is free. Tickets will be sold for cookies and some games. There will also be raffles featuring a family basket, pet basket as well as other fun items donated by local businesses. Proceeds from the event will be used to provide children’s programs and to enhance the children’s section of the Aston library.
The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Aston Library.
