Unlikely Story of a Pig In the City Author Visit

Posted by on Oct 22, 2017 in | 0 comments

Meet Del Val’s very own Jodi Kendall (class of 1998), author of The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City. Every young person (and those of us who used to be young) can relate to this story. A little pig in a big city leads to lots of trouble! Josie Shilling’s family is too big, their cramped city house is too small, and she feels like no one’s ever on her side. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey—a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm. Her name is Hamlet. The minute Josie holds Hamlet, she feels an instant connection. But there’s no room for Hamlet in the crowded Shilling household. And whoever heard of keeping a pig in the city? So it’s up to Josie to find her a forever home. The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City is a heartwarming tale of family, belonging, and growing bigger when you’ve always felt small. Join us. Refreshments will be...

Harry Potter, Muggles and Midnight Magic

Posted by on Aug 20, 2016 in In The News | 0 comments

The Book Garden celebrated Harry Potter’s birthday and the release of the much anticipated, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Saturday, July 30th.  The book is in stageplay form, written by John Tiffany and Jack Thorne with help from JK Rowling; Thorne adapted the story into book form. It is the first Harry Potter release since 2007. A core group of young local fans,  Aiden, Grace, and Charlotte worked diligently since February to set the stage for the evening and were joined by Brianne, Megan, Julia, Annecy and Emmaline in May to pull together the final details. The result was an evening filled with trivia, treats – butter beer, unicorn blood punch, Bott’s Beans and Hagrid’s Rock Cakes (three varieties as part of tasting contest). By 11pm the Book Garden was transformed into a miniature Hogwarts with over 100 students, professors and other witches, wizards and muggles spilling out into the street where dueling matches took place. Just before midnight, Roger of the River Town Radio Theater troupe read the epilogue of the last Harry Potter book to a mesmerized audience. The magic of Harry Potter swirled through Frenchtown well into the morning hours and beyond. We are honored to have been part of this fantastical...
