Portage Library to host children's author M.C. Tillson Oct. 22

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library, the Copper Country Reading Council, and Michigan’ Tech’s English Education Program invite families and teachers to enjoy a special evening with children’s author M.C. Tillson.

Tillson will present a short talk appealing to children, teens, parents, and teachers about her Michigan Lighthouse mystery series from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22. She will also read excerpts from her books The Clue at Copper Harbor, The Mystery at Eagle Harbor, and The Secret of Bete Grise Bay and explain how the books’ characters found themselves hot on the track of lighthouse adventures in the Keweenaw.

Tillson, author of several children's books, lives in California and is the owner of A and M Writing and Publishing. Chapter-by-chapter lesson plans for her Michigan Lighthouse Adventure books align with Michigan’s 3rd grade common core standards. Puzzle books that include crossword puzzles, word searches, and math riddles are also available for two of the books in the Michigan Lighthouse trilogy; and the third one is being planned.

The program will allow time for a question and answer session as well as a book signing and selling following the presentation.

This event is for all ages. Library programs are free and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
