Families are invited to join us at the library as we listen to Jasper native and author Marylin Leinenbach read her new book Leah Marie and the Bug. This book tells the story of a little girl with Down Syndrome and her day to day experiences coping with the effects of the current pandemic. There is a positive message at the end about how families can come together during these challenging times. Marylin is an Associate Professor emerita in the Teaching and Learning Dept. at Indiana State University. She recently received the Greater Jasper Consolidated School Distinguished Alumni Award. One of her great-grandchildren is the character in the book Leah Marie. Marylin wrote this book with co-author Anne Raymond who currently writes children’s books designed to engage children in mathematics in both familiar and exciting ways. Join us for this fun time! No sign up is needed.
