“A stunning debut by Jan Ellison . . . Like the photograph that arrives in the mail and sets in motion the plot of this gorgeous novel, A Small Indiscretion reminds us of the intensity of youthful desire and of the fragile nature of a marriage built on secrecy.”—Ann Packer, New York Times bestselling author of The Dive from Clausen’s Pier

Pajama Party Valentine’s Day Storytime

with Rita Graham

Thursday | February 5 | 6pm

Join us for a very special evening pajama party storytime with local author Rita Graham. Rita will be reading from her books. Big Brother Little Brother is Rita’s big debut. What began as a simple observation of a friend’s children evolved into a children’s book of universal appeal. No matter what country you are in and no matter what cultural background you come from, you will be able to relate to the timeless monstrations of sibling rivalry, which are fused by the bonds of brotherly love. The sequel to the debut book, Big Brother Little Sister,  will surely strike a similar chord of familiarity with its readers. Also look for Even Though I Cannot Stay, Rita’s second book on separation anxiety.
