Inkwood Books says
This month we have another VERY SPECIAL book club for kids! MONDAY, APRIL 25 at 6:30 PM. The April book club pick is RUBY LEE AND ME, a novel based on the author's childhood and one amazing teacher who changed her life.
The kids will have the amazing opportunity to have a VIP meet & greet with the author of Ruby Lee and Me, Shannon Hitchcock. Bring your questions (and your books!). She'll meet with the kids from 6:30 until just after 7, at which time a formal book-signing will follow.

The kids (and parents!) are more than welcome to stay for the book signing!

About Ruby Lee & Me: Everything's changing for Sarah Beth Willis. After Robin's tragic accident, everyone seems different somehow. Days on the farm aren't the same, and the simple fun of riding a bike or playing outside can be scary. And there's talk in town about the new sixth-grade teacher at Shady Creek. Word is spreading quickly--Mrs. Smyre is like no other teacher anyone has ever seen around these parts. She's the first African American teacher. It's 1969, and while black folks and white folks are cordial, having a black teacher at an all-white school is a strange new happening. For Sarah Beth, there are so many unanswered questions. What is all this talk about Freedom Riders and school integration? Why can't she and Ruby become best friends? And who says school isn't for anybody who wants to learn--or teach? In a world filled with uncertainty, one very special teacher shows her young students and the adults in their lives that change invites unexpected possibilities.

About Shannon Hitchcock: Shannon Hitchcock is the author of the critically acclaimed The Ballad of Jessie Pearl, hailed for its immediacy and cadenced voice.
