Jeannie Mobley’s second novel, Searching for Silverheels, (Margaret K. McElderry Books) arrives in bookstores September 2nd. As thirteen-year-old Pearl debates the truth behind the local Colorado legend of Silverheels with a cranky old women’s suffragist, the early days of World War I bring accusations of sedition and un-American behavior to the small town of Como, and force Pearl to discover the true nature of heroism–and the danger of standing up for what she believes. Kirkus Reviews calls it “An engrossing, plausible story of several unlikely feminist heroines with a touch of romance and intrigue.” Ages 12 and up.
Join Jeannie to celebrate the release of her new book on Saturday, September 13th, from 3:00-5:00 PM at the Longmont Public Library, 409 4th Avenue, Longmont. There will be refreshments and activities for all ages. Wear your best–or most creative–silver heels for a prize. Free. For more information, contact Jeannie Mobley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
