Manchester Community Library to Host Kids’ Author
Karen Gross, author of ‘Lady Lucy’s Quest,’ will be visiting the Manchester Community Library at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 11, to share her book with children ages four and up. Gross is the former president of Southern Vermont College and has served as an educational consultant in Washington, DC. She is presently a visiting faculty member at Bennington College. ‘Lady Lucy’s Quest’ is the story of a feisty young girl who wants to become a knight in the Middle Ages. She confronts many hurdles but ultimately succeeds because she is able to solve problems in creative ways. Through her actions and words she demonstrates the power of the possible for both girls and boys. The free program will include a craft component and possibly a quest. Children must be supervised by adult caregivers. MCL is located at 138 Cemetery Avenue in Manchester Center.
