The NRC Library will host book signings for local authors/illustrators


New River Community College will host a book signing on Sunday, November 6 from 2-5 p.m. at the NRC Library.

Author Salley Chinn and illustrators Harriet Anderson, Cindy Moore and Carolyn Turner will all be available to present their children’s book “Seth and the Secret of the Butterfly.”

Chinn is a mother of three boys, grandmother of six and a former middle school English teacher. Turner is a mother and grandmother and retired from Radford University after working at the print shop. Anderson is a mother of one, grandmother of two, and an assistant biology instructor at New River Community College. Moore is a mother of two boys, including Seth. She worked over 20 years as a graphic designer and web developer, most recently at Virginia Tech.

The book describes how to imagine what it would be like to encounter a talking butterfly whispering a life-changing secret. The story tells the story of five children with special needs who meet a magical butterfly named Lilly, who teaches children how to turn sadness into joy and challenges into dreams. “Seth and the Secret of the Butterfly” inspires all children to celebrate who they are and dream of what they could become.
