Lesley Younge's event at People's Book on May 5th from 9:30 am to 10:00 am is a must-attend for anyone who loves a thrilling story and a fast-paced adventure. The event will feature Younge's latest picture book, "A-Train Allen," which follows the story of a young boy who is known as the fastest kid in the neighborhood. Allen is always racing through the city, from the park to the library and down the sidewalks, earning him the nickname "A-Train" for his lightning-fast speed. But where is he always rushing off to? Younge's book promises to take readers on a journey to discover what finally gets this speedy youngster to slow down and enjoy the ride. As an Own Voices, Own Stories Grand Prize winner, "A-Train Allen" is a celebration of diverse perspectives and authentic storytelling. Younge, a veteran teacher with 18 years of classroom experience, brings her passion for education and her love of literature to this delightful tale. In addition to her work as a writer, Younge is also a fellow of the Hurston/Wright Foundation and Anaphora Literary Arts, and her writing has been featured in various literary journals. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly from the author, learn more about her creative process, and even purchase a signed copy of the book. Whether you're a fan of fast-paced adventures, a supporter of diverse and inclusive children's literature, or simply looking for an engaging and entertaining event, Lesley Younge's reading of "A-Train Allen" at People's Book is not to be missed. Mark your calendars and get ready to race through the city with this remarkable young character.
