Greater Boston Reading Council cordially invites you for an open house and hors d’oeuvres at Charlesbridge Publishing.

We are pleased to announce that two authors will be speaking about their work with us.  Both their books will be available for signing.  Charlesbridge will generously provide attendees with a coupon for one free book of their choice and other books on display will be available for purchase at a discount:  $5 for paperbacks and $10 for hardcovers.

This is a free event for GBC members thanks to the generosity of Charlesbridge Publishing.

Michelle Cusolito has been exploring natural places since she was a child growing up on a farm in Massachusetts. This May, Flying Deep:  Climb Inside Deep-Sea Submersible Alvin will be released.  She won the 2016 PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award for an earlier version of Flying Deep.  She has worked as a fourth-grade teacher, a curriculum specialist, and an adjunct professor.  Now, when she’s not exploring around in the world, she’s usually in her office or local coffee shop weaving her experiences into stories for children.  Michelle lives in Rochester, Massachusetts.


Parking Important to note: there is parking in the rear of the building (the parking lot behind their parking lot is available, but not the parking in the access road between the two lots).  In addition, attendees should not park on the Sovereign Bank side of the lot, as non-customers might be towed.  There is also street parking on the road between 85 Main Street and the Fire Station.

Please send me an email with your name, address, and daytime mail so we can have an accurate account of those who plan to attend.  Also, in case of inclement weather we will notify you by email of any change.  Email: ruthberg@rcn.com
