Featured Book: The Princess and the Café on the Moat
Tuesday, July 16th
Join us for a fun and interactive story time with children's author Margie Markarian!
Once upon a time there was a very busy castle. And in that castle lived a king, a queen, a young princess, and all their courtiers and attendants. Everyone was very busy. The king conferred with his knights. The queen was occupied with her ladies-in-waiting. And the rest of the palace staff was doing their daily chores. Everyone was working. Everyone but the princess, who wanted very much to be engaged like the others. But it seemed nobody wanted or needed her help. Determined to be useful, the kindhearted princess sneaked away to the countryside to look for opportunities to help others. What did she find outside the castle walls? This feel-good story reminds us all about the importance of reaching out and taking time to connect with one another.

About the Author: Margie Markarian is a children’s book author and freelance editor/writer based in Franklin, Massachusetts. The Princess and the Café on the Moat (Sleeping Bear Press) is her first picture book. Margie has also written several nonfiction books for kids. Like the main character in the Princess and the Café on the Moat, Margie enjoys keeping busy and connecting with people, far and wide. If she’s not writing (or chatting!) at a local café, it’s probably because she’s exploring a nearby New England city, town or seaside village. Margie has a passion for instilling a love of reading and writing in children. Within her community, she spent five years running creative storytelling events for children in grades K-5 through the Reading Is Fundamental program. In addition, she planned and presented writing workshops to help elementary school students develop, research, and write editions of the Boston Sunday Globe Fun Pages, a newspaper supplement for kids.
