Come meet children’s author Carole R. Young and illustrator Mary Lynn Miraglia at the Fairport Museum December 9, from 10:30AM—11:30AM, as they discuss and sign copies of their book “On Pins and Needles: A Christmas Tale.”

When two little girls learn they have the whole house to themselves, while their parents deliver Christmas treats to the neighbors, they are ecstatic. Their decision to play hide-and-seek starts out well enough, but soon disaster strikes. Have they ruined Christmas? What will Mommy and Daddy say when they get home?

“On Pins and Needles” is a warm and tender tale that tells how one family copes with just such a problem. Adults and children alike will appreciate the outcome.

Author Carole R. Young worked for 12 years as a K–6 reading teacher in Webster, New York. She and her husband, Donald, have two adult children and seven grandchildren. On Pins and Needles is her third book. Illustrator Mary Lynn Miraglia worked for 33 years as a Special Education Teacher. She and her husband, John, live in Webster, New York, overlooking beautiful Lake Ontario. They have three adult children and one grandchild, and are anxiously awaiting the birth of their second! On Pins and Needles is her second illustrated book.

Copies of “On Pins and Needles” will be available for purchase at $9.95; cash and checks are accepted.
And don’t forget to pay a visit to Santa—he will be in the museum visiting with boys and girls who want to share their Christmas lists with him!
