The Village Alien

Meet Kathleen Donoho.  She is part of a writing team that has put Zionsville on the map in the book world.  Kathleen, who is modeling a display set up in the teen area) and her father, Steve Donoho, have brought an unusual and unique type of book to the table.  The Village Alien is a book where readers decide how the book ends.  With more than 60 endings, two readers will never have read the same story and each of the stories take around ten minutes to read.  As fascinating as I find this information, this is still not the coolest part.  Kathleen and Steve live in Zionsville and their book also takes place in Zionsville!  Lucky for us, the pair has decided to share their experience in writing with teens in grades 6 and up during Teen Read Week, which is October 14-22.  Thanks in part to a grant by the Young Adult Services Association and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, each teen attending will get their own copy of the book to take home and while they listen, teens will get to munch on the tasty treats the characters themselves enjoy in the book.  So come in on Wednesday, October 17 for an awesome adventure of self-publication and a free book, and then stay for the food.  Registration is recommended (so we have enough food).
