'Puddinhead' family book reading Dec. 15
BY: Rikki Cason | December 08, 2012
The Erie Canal Discovery Center is pleased to welcome local author Marilyn Foote who will present a free, family friendly, program and book reading at 11 a.m. Dec. 15 from her children’s book series entitled, “Puddinhead.”
Foote is no stranger to children, having taught elementary school for 42 years in urban and suburban communities, serving 20 years overseas and 23 years in Buffalo.
“I see many children that are so stressed that they do not have hope in their lives,” said Foote.
She blames much of this stress on too much negative programming which influences children. She offered that her mission is to write children’s stories that show a positive view of cohesive families and strong faith-based relationships.
Foote was chosen in 2007 as one of only 10 authors to be published in her genre of Children’s Christian literature by Tate Publications.
Foote’s fourth book in the “Puddinhead” series, “Puddinhead and the Christmas Poem,” debuted in 2011. She was also honored to be selected as a finalist for the International Book Award in 2012.
Foote will be present and will read excerpts from her book series at the Erie Canal Discovery Center, 24 Church St.
Books are available at the Discovery Center and at Niagara County History Center, 215 Niagara St.
