Al Capone Does My Shirts, winner of the Newbery Honor Medal, bowled readers over with its humor, local history, and incredible story. Gennifer did it again with Al Capone Shines My Shoes. In a total departure, she wrote No Passengers Beyond This Point which tells a story of adventure and survival, set in a fantastical place with rules all its own. Sharp dialogue and taut action make this a book that will stick with you long after you read the incredible ending. This is an afternoon not to be missed!
In the spirit of Hicklebee's Read-Aloud Summer, Gennifer Choldenko along with actors from Peninsula Youth Theatre, will be presenting a Reader's Theater production of her books. Reader's Theater is a dramatic presentation of a book adapted to script form. The focus is on reading the text with expressive voices and gestures. A booksigning will follow.
