Enchanted villages, mysterious messages in bottles, magical jumbies, and more! Join us as we welcome a marvelous panel of middle-grade authors – Tara Dairman, Jessica Lawson, Tracey Baptiste, and maybe a more special guests – to One More Page!

THE GREAT HIBERNATION by Tara Dairman: What would happen if every grown-up in town fell asleep and the kids were left in charge? A great pick for fans of A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff and Greenglass House by Kate Milford or any reader seeking a quirky mystery with a big helping of silliness.

UNDER THE BOTTLE BRIDGE by Jessica Lawson: In the weeks leading up to Gilbreth, New York’s annual AutumnFest, twelve-year-old woodcraft legacy Minna Treat is struggling with looming deadlines, an uncle trying to hide Very Bad News, and a secret personal quest. When she discovers mysterious bottle messages under one of the village’s 300-year-old bridges, she can’t help but wonder who’s leaving them, what they mean, and, most importantly…could the messages be for her?

RISE OF THE JUMBIES by Tracey Baptiste: Corinne LaMer defeated the wicked jumbie Severine months ago, but things haven’t exactly gone back to normal in her Caribbean island home. Everyone knows Corinne is half-jumbie, and many of her neighbors treat her with mistrust. When local children begin to go missing, snatched from the beach and vanishing into wells, suspicious eyes turn to Corinne.
