The Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library will be holding a book signing with local author Ashley Uzzell. She will be signing copies of her newest middle grade fantasy novel, Tales of Mentara: The Portal.
The Portal is the first book of the Tales of Mentara series, and tells the story of Charlotte, a twelve year old girl with a complicated home life and mysterious powers that she struggles to control. During the summer of 1993 she, along with five other children, are inexplicably drawn to a place on the outskirts of town, and then transported to a new and dangerous alien world. The children must work together to find their way back home to Earth, but Charlotte isn’t so sure that she wants to return.
The book signing for this title will be held on Saturday, June 9 from 2 PM to 4 PM.
