Jane will be talking books, horses, and taking questions from fans. A book-signing will follow her presentation. Attendees will also be entered into a drawing for gift certificates from our co-sponsor, Dover Saddlery.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Pulitzer Prize winner, Jane Smiley pens a fourth stunning horse novel for young readers. Abby Lovitt doesn't realize how unprepared she is when she takes her beloved horse, True Blue, to a clinic led by the most famous equestrian anyone knows. The biggest surprise, though, is that Sophia, the girl who never makes a mistake, suddenly makes so many that she stops riding. Who will ride her horse? Abby's dad seems to think it will be Abby. Pie in the Sky is the most expensive horse Abby has ever ridden. But he is proud and irritable, and he takes Abby's attention away from the continuing mystery that is True Blue.
