Great White Sharks Swimming to the Doylestown Library

A program Saturday will celebrate the release of 'Danger in the Deep Blue Sea,' by Bucks County children's author Debbie Dadey.

Great white sharks will 'attack' the Doylestown library on Saturday.

Children's author and Bucks County resident Debbie Dadey will host a special program to celebrate the release of her newest book. The latest in her "Mermaid Tales" series, "Danger in the Deep Blue Sea" finds main character Pearl stirring up trouble after sharks are sighted in Trident City.

Dadey, who lives in Furlong with her husband, three children, and dogs Bailey, Skip and Shadow, will read from the book, which goes on sale on Jan. 29.

The free program runs from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Pearl Buck Room of the library on Pine Street. Light refreshments will be served and the entire family is welcome.

Dadey has authored or co-authored 152 children’s books, including The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids series. To learn more, visit her website at http://www.debbiedadey.com/

Dadey is the first speaker in a series of free community programs sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The programs are financed by the Friends’ annual book sale, which raised more than $9,000 this fall, despite being closed for three days due to Superstorm Sandy.

Keep up with the happenings at the library by following the blog of Sandy Cody, another Bucks County author and past president of the Friends, here on Doylestown Patch.

This would be about a million times more useful had it been posted even one day before the event. Many people have already made their Saturday plans before 5:45AM Saturday....

Hi Tom and Connie. Thanks for your input. The info on this was first posted on Thursday: http://doylestown.patch.com/blog_posts/sharks-coming-to-doylelstown-library And actually, it was supposed to have been posted even earlier, but was held up by a glitch on the back end that has since been resolved – I hope! Also, I think a lot of people don’t know that you can search the event calendar directly, and browse through the events that people have posted. Here's that link: http://doylestown.patch.com/events The event calendar is open to any person, group, business or organization in the community, too, so be sure to post your own event listing, if you have something going on. Here's the link for that: http://doylestown.patch.com/events/new I used to do a weekend planner on Thursdays, but kind of got out of the habit. Would a “here’s what’s going on this week” post on a Monday, be helpful? I’d be happy to start that, if people would find it useful. Let me know what you think, and thanks again for writing.
