Local Author Reading and Book Signing

Local teen author, Charity A. Balyeat will be visiting the Underwood Public Library on Tuesday, March 10th. She will be reading from her book “Eleanor: The Daring Princess”, set in the fictional, medieval kingdom of Irithria.

Synopsis: When Princess Eleanor refuses the marriage offer of Prince Wallace, the son of her vicious enemy, she is kidnapped. Prince Wallace is sure that Eleanor will change her mind, if she truly wishes to see her parents again.
“Anyway”, he says to himself, “It wouldn’t be that bad having to marry me.” However, when she still refuses, he finds out that she is in love with another, and her heart would never allow her to marry another. What will happen when an infuriated prince, hungry for power, clashes with a love-driven duke?

A great read for 4th-6th graders! Please join us as we listen to the first chapter of Charity’s novel. Books will be available for purchase for $10 during the books signing. Refreshments will also be provided!
