Join local author Keir Graff at 4 p.m. on October 22 for the national launch of his middle-grade novel, The Other Felix.
This late-afternoon party is free to all, and both kids and grownups are welcome. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served; beer, wine, and other food may be purchased.
The Other Felix marks Graff’s debut as a children’s author. He has also written four books for adults, including The Price of Liberty (which was a finalist for the Society of Midland Authors fiction prize). The Other Felix has received strong prepublication reviews from Publishers Weekly (which notes his “skill at capturing the small, everyday details and dramas that loom large in children’s minds”) and Kirkus (which calls it a “thoughtful, whimsical story”). Award-winning children’s author Esther Hershenhorn praises it as “A gentle book for a violent time; a book for fathers to read with their sons.”
