Memorial Day weekend: Saint Paul Public Library will be closed May 23 - 25.

New York Times Bestselling Children’s Author Visiting Saint Paul Public Library

Date: Mar 27th, 2013

Jennifer Fosberry will be visiting Highland Park Library on April 10 for a family event. She will be reading from and discussing her new book, Isabella: Star of the Story.  

With over 100,000 copies of her books in print, Jennifer Fosberry's plucky, precocious, purple-haired Isabella is a favorite with kids, parents, and teachers. Scholastic Parent & Child calls her "the little girl whose fabulous imagination leads the way," and readers clearly agree: her two previous excursions, My Name is Not Isabella and Isabella: Girl on the Go were both New York Times bestselling picture books.  

Every day's an adventure with Isabella, and in Isabella: Star of the Story, what starts as a routine trip to the library turns into magic adventure through the pages of classic fiction as Isabella imagines herself as some of fiction's most memorable characters. Combined with Mike Litwin's colorful and exuberant illustrations, Jennifer Fosberry has created an inspiring new tale for Isabella which celebrates the importance of reading and imagination.

Below is the schedule for Fosberry's April 10 visit:
