A holiday treat for the kids — story time with author and artist!

December 15, 2010

President Doti signs books for young fans at last week's story time at Leatherby Libraries.

Here’s a holiday treat any youngster would love – story time with a real author and artist! You can treat any book lovers you know to just such a gift at President Jim Doti’s next reading of his new children’s book “A Christmas Adventure in Little Italy” at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17 at the Barnes & Noble in Orange (on Main Street across from MainPlace). President Doti will be joined by the book’s illustrator, Lisa Mertins, and they’ll sign copies after the reading.

Based on a memory from his childhood in Chicago and richly illustrated by Mertins, A Christmas Adventure in Little Italy is the tale of little Jimmy, his beloved dog Blackie and his Nonna (grandmother) in a holiday adventure that features family warmth, a bit of suspense (not too much for the little ones), a nun, a Radio Flyer red wagon, an angel, a snowstorm, and fresh-baked biscotti.  In fact, there’s a recipe for Nonna’s Biscotti included in the back of the book.
