Shelly Brown | Willa and the Whale

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Co-author Shelly Brown will read from and sign her new middle reader novel, Willa and the Whale

When her mother dies, twelve-year-old Willa feels lost and alone except when she connects with things her mom loved about the wonders of the ocean as a marine biologist.

While on a whale-watching excursion with her dad, who is trying to cheer her up after Willa is sent to live with him and his new family, Willa is alone on one side of the boat when she sees a humpback whale. Her awe and wonderment about this massive and beautiful creature turns to shock when the whale communicates with her, introducing herself as Meg and exchanging small talk. Willa asks if they can talk again, and Meg tells her that if she goes to the edge of the shore and calls out to her, she'll reply. Whales, after all, are very social creatures and communicate by sounds that can travel for miles, underwater.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Willa and the Whale from The King's English.
