"Zelda Darling" Book Event with Authors Penny Lazzari Thompson & Christine Area, Dec. 22nd at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes authors Penny Lazzari Thompson and Christine Area as they discuss their new children's book "Zelda Darling with Pixie Cee"

***Sunday, December 22nd, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

Crash! Joe and Zelda Darling jump when they hear the sound from inside The Flower Shop. Then fast as a dart, Alley cat races from the shop and out into the street. The tires on the cars and trucks squeal and screech as Alley makes it to the other side and frantically claws her way up the tall wooden fence. What was the loud crash? What happened inside the flower shop that scared Alley so? You can bet Zelda Darling will get to the bottom of this. Will Zelda and her friends find out what really happened inside the flower shop?

About the Authors:

Penny Lazzari has always loved writing, books and children. From the time she was a child, she enjoyed reading books from the Book Mobile. As a teenager, Penny worked in her high school library as a volunteer. She also kept her children’s grammar school library open by volunteering and becoming its head librarian. Penny brought in other stay-at-home mothers to help keep the library open longer hours. She also brought programs like R.I.F. (Reading Is Fundamental) into the school to help children learn that reading can be fun and enjoyable. Penny had the pleasure of knowing Zelda Darling and knew a book must be written about this princess cat. Penny enjoyed having the opportunity of recording the story so that others could also enjoy reading about Zelda’s zany adventures.

Christine Area has always enjoyed twisting and working with words, in a way that makes your mind think and wonder. Having already being published in poetry books and newspapers, her work as also been seen live at B.A.D. (Be A Dear) girls events. Continuing to deepen her enjoyment of the written word, Christine is now venturing into children’s books. She is excited and looking forward to this challenge in bringing enjoyable characters to life.
