Join us for a visit with children's author Leigh Lewis. Ms. Lewis's newest book, Pirate Queens: Dauntless Women Who Dared to Rule the High Seas, explores the wow-worthy lives of daring and dangerous female pirates throughout history. Lewis has also authored two best-selling board books, It's Not the Puppy and It's Not the Baby.

Leigh Lewis is a children's writer and poet who has been "playing pirates" since she could walk. Her adventures on the high seas have enabled her to call many places "home," including Turkey, Greece, England and Russia, as well as cities all over the United States. Eventually, Lewis navigated her way back to her hometown of Upper Arlington, Ohio, where she spends her time dreaming up stories for kids of all ages.

We will be on site to sell copies of Ms. Lewis's books. Registration is required and opens Nov. 15 at 9 am. Please direct questions about registration to Upper Arlignton Library Tremont at (614) 486-9621.
