During her one-hour library program, Ms. Wong will talk about her two newest books, and she will also talk about writing for publication. The program is suitable for ages 5 and up. Ms. Wong will be available to autograph books after her presentation, and some of her books will be on sale at the library. Refreshments will be served after the program. So come join us at the library for a wonderful family event!
