Join us for a visit with children's authors Erik Jon Slangerup and Kristy Boyce. Mr. Slangerup is excited to share his newest book, Molly and the Machines. Follow the adventures of Molly McQuirter, on a mission to rescue her kidnapped brother. On the way, she discovers a crew of unusually determined pets, a story of lost love, and some seriously strange science.
At our event, experience Molly and the Machine like never before, with an immersive, full-sensory experience, with kids having the opportunity to see, hear, taste, touch, smell—and even enter—the story!
Author Erik Jon Slangerup grew up in a magical time, before cell phones or the internet. It was called the 80s. He spent most of it roaming outdoors unsupervised, which inspired him to write tales of adventure. Molly and the Machine is his debut middle-grade novel, out June 7, 2022 by Simon & Schuster/Aladdin Books. The sequel, Molly and the Mutants, will follow in 2023.
Erik has also written several picture books, including the award-winning Dirt Boy, and co-created StorySnacker, the Webby-nominated read-aloud app ranked “Top 5 Apps in the World for Family and Kids.” Erik is the father of five, which has been his biggest adventure yet. He lives in Columbus, Ohio.
This event is presented in partnership with the Upper Arlington Public Library. Registration is required and opens May 28 at 10 am.
