Miller's Opening Night is the story of a little mouse family who lives in an old abandoned theater in Augusta, Georgia. It's a story of dreams, aspirations, and possibilities. Anyone -- young or old -- will relate to the characters in this tale. A most interesting feature of the book is that it's based on a real-life campaign to reopen the beautiful, historic Miller Theater in Augusta, Georgia, closed since 1985. Author Levi Hill says there are many aspects of realism in this story as feelings of doubt and disappointment have at times challenged the team in its efforts to restore the landmark in downtown Augusta. The author wrote the book with the intent of donating the proceeds of its sale to restore the theater. His idea is to inspire those who buy the book, knowing that they too are playing a role in bringing the theater back to life. "It's big project," said Hill, "but together we can do it. Together, let's do something big!"

Have you ever taught an octopus to roll over? It's harder than it looks. Discover why octopuses make the best pets in this charming picture book about friendship and embracing individuality
Izzy has always wanted a pet. So when an adventurous octopus squiggles into town, Izzy decides to keep him. After all, a real pirate captain has to have a mascot. Oscar is not very good at going for walks or playing fetch. (Although he is amazing at hide and seek). And he's definitely not like other pets...
But he is just right for Izzy.
Readers will be tickled by Izzy's attempts to teach Oscar to behave like a dog, a parrot, a pony-and gratified by Izzy's realization that in the end we love others for who they are...eight arms and all
A special Story Time with local author Sarah Frances Hardy who will be launching her new picture book, DRESS ME!
Identical twins, Kathy and Maggie, yearned to camp out in their backyard with their older brother, Billy, one long, hot summer night. Only thing is, it's Billy's tenth birthday and the campout is part of his birthday wish. Kathy grouses until she gets her wish granted-and, as the saying goes, you better watch what you wish for! Let the adventures begin! The twins invite a guest over for the campout and outnumber the boys 3-2. Hoping the odds are in their favor, the girls team up against the boys. The boys have other ideas and have planned a night full of misadventures to try out on the girls. A scavenger hunt involving rabbit poop and live roaches is just the beginning. It's the haunted house across the creek and the ghost story that creep the girls out. But Kathy has plans to fight back and revenge is oh, so sweet! Home is where the heart is rings true for Margaret and Katherine King - in Oxford, Mississippi. Their first three books are nonfiction stories from their childhood-rascals being rascals because, as identical twins, they could get away with everything, and did! Booklovers ages 6 to 106 can enjoy the twins' antics as readers laugh through the crazy tales in Y'all Twins?, Which is Which? and Our Josephine. Follow the twins, Kathy and Maggie, in a Halloween misadventure in Boo!, to be released in August, 2015. And five-year-old identical twins, Kit and Kat, go Kicking and Screaming to get their immunizations, a requirement before going to kindergarten. "Who made up that crazy ol' rule?" Kit wanted to know. And so it goes! Kicking and Screaming will be released in June, 2015. More zany tales to come for Kit and Kat and Maggie and Kathy.
