ATKINSON - Come join us for a spectacular event with author Natasha Lowe. She will be joining us for a book discussion with grades 3-8 about her book, “The Power of Poppy Pendle.” To be part of this discussion is as simple as asking us for a copy of the book at the main desk. Registration is required, and you may sign your child up online or ask us to do that for you. Copies are available now.

Take a peek into the magical world of Poppy. “Ten-year-old Poppy, born to ordinary parents, has inherited coveted witch power. In Poppy’s world, witches work for good and are much valued, but Poppy does not want to be a witch—she wants to be a baker, and she is extremely good at baking. Her parents insist Poppy follow in the footsteps of her great aunt, a famous witch, but Poppy has plans of her own.” We guarantee that this book will make you ‘hungry’ for more. :)

Natasha Lowe was born and raised in London, England and developed her love of imagination, good books and tea at a young age. She currently lives in Deerfield, MA with her husband, her four children and a stone goose with some magical qualities. Natasha Lowe will be joining us for some thrilling discussion on Thurs., June 5, at 6:30 p.m., with cookies and signed copies of her novel, “The Power of Poppy Pendle”, at a discounted author’s price.
