Meet Author Annie Barrows
Wednesday, April 22, 3:30pm
Council Chambers
Annie Barrows spent most of her childhood reading or on her way to and from the San Anselmo Library, where she started working when she was only 12 years old! All those years around books paid off. Now, Ms. Barrows is the internationally bestselling author of the beloved Ivy + Bean series.
Now Ms. Barrows returns to the cradle of her literary ambitions to read from her children’s books and answer questions from her favorite readers—you!  A book signing will follow the presentation. Seating is limited and doors will open at 3:15pm.
