Acworth Bookstore will hold a book signing by Rita Campbell on Saturday February 10th from 1 to 5 PM. Rita will be signing her children’s book “Emberlina Sprite-a-Light”. The book is a Moonbeam Award winning book. The book was written to inspire imaginative learning.
Emberlina lights up the fireflies, mosses and mushrooms that glow in the dark. But she wakes up one morning to find out that her wand is not working and so she has to go to the light lagoon to get her powers back. The best part of the book is that it includes a solar mushroom fairy house that encourages the reader to invite the fairies to your yard. When the light is on in the house at night, the fairies are home. Rita Campbell, a teacher, master gardener and fairyologist knows how important imagination is to learning and hopes to inspire an imaginative learning environment with her book and fairy house. “Let the twinkle of light inspire the magic”
