The Friends of the Orange County Public Library is hosting its fall book sale and sponsoring book readings by local authors Daniel Wallace, Gloria Glenn, and Joyce Allen. The authors’ books will be available for purchase at the readings, courtesy of Purple Crow Books.
Daniel Wallace, author of the best-selling novel Big Fish, will read from his book for young children, The Cat’s Pajamas, on Sunday at 1 p.m. Written and illustrated by Daniel, this picture book was crowd-published by Inkshares. It is the story of the time when cats actually wore pajamas, hence the phrase, “He’s the cat’s pajamas!”
