***Saturday, November 14th, 2-4pm***
At Florey's Book Co.

Local author June Ahern will discuss her novel "The Skye in June". It is a coming of age story about the MacDonald family and their youngest child, June, who has an uniqueness that attracts unusual people: she's fey prophesies an old gypsy.

The story unfolds in Glasgow Scotland with Cathy, the mother, riding in the back of a taxi on her way to the hospital to deliver yet another bairn (child.) Cathy defies her husband, Jimmy, by naming their newborn daughter June rather than after a saint, as was their Catholic tradition. Jimmy is furious saying the name is a pagan one. The decision sets the MacDonald's on a course that will ultimately threaten the family's very foundation...

Ms. Ahern will offer a free mini psychic reading with the purchase of the book.

T.Runt! is a dinosaur's story of growing up. Vegrandis was the runt of the litter and was always picked on by the larger tyrannosaurs...but everything changes once Vegrandis discovers he isn't the smallest animal - let alone dinosaur - in the world!
