She’ll be on hand at the store on Saturday, April 4 from noon to 1 p.m. She’ll be talking about the first book in a new series about endangered and misunderstood animals, Aye-Aye Gets Lucky.

“On the surface, Aye-Aye Gets Lucky is about a misunderstood lemur finding a way to win the love of the villagers, but look deeper and it’s a story about empathy, self-acceptance, community and second chances,” says a write-up about the book.
