literalThe Auburn-Webster Elks is hosting local author, Kate Hanscom on March 15 at 2pm.  This is a free community event open to the general public.

Hanscom is the author of two children’s books, Fickle Fiona and Literal Lily. Free copies of both books will be available to children in attendance while supplies last.

Kate Hanscom grew up as the youngest of three children in Utica, New York. Her writing is inspired by the vivid and whimsical imagination that she has had since childhood, though the antics and stories of her youth have provided no lack of story material. Currently, Kate lives in Auburn, Massachusetts with her husband Chris and daughters Allison and Jane. A graduate of Stonehill College, she lives her life with a song in the background, a pen in her hand, and the belief that with hard work and a plan, anything is achievable. In putting pen to paper, Kate is delighted to see the characters of her imagination come to life. She hopes that when readers meet Lily, they are encouraged to laugh, ask questions, expand their minds, and dream bigger than they ever knew possible!  To find out more about Hanscom and her books, visit her website www.katehanscom.com.

The Auburn-Webster Elks is located at 754 Southbridge St., Auburn.  For more information, contact Angel King, bktbird@gmail.com
