Local Children's Author Reading @ Central

Tuesday, August 18 at 1:30 at Central Library

Local pastor, Edmund Lee Castro, has written and illustrated two faith-based children’s picture books about a little girl named Crystal. In Crystal and the Not-so-Scary Night, the little girl is calmed by her mother’s suggestion to pray when she is frightened.  Her mommy tells her a bedtime story about God’s creation of the world in Crystal and Her Flying Adventure. Crystal then dreams of being able to fly to visit the wonders in the sky and world. Books may be purchased with the proceeds benefitting the Library.
