Author of gentle children’s book to sign here

SALISBURY — Beth Carter will bring her gentle story of being different to Literary Bookpost on Saturday, March 15.
“The Lonely Little Sea Shell,” with simple but genuine illustrations by Sara Fox, is the story of a shell that just wants to be picked up and saved in someone’s collection.
And it’s the story of a little red-haired girl who learns a lesson about being different without really realizing it’s a lesson. The drawings look to be in colored pencil, allowing for soft shades and those hard-to-capture seaside colors.
Included in the book are three pages of shell photos to help young beach-goers identify some of what they see on the shore.
Carter attended undergraduate school at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and received her BA degree in speech language pathology and audiology. She completed her master’s program at Appalachian State University with an MA degree in communication disorders.
She lives in Statesville with her husband Daryl. They have two sons and two grandchildren. Carter is a speech-language pathologist with 25 years of experience in both the clinical and educational setting. She works in elementary and middle school. She has taught children’s literature and language and literacy experiences at the community college level. Carter fell in love with seashells as a child when her family lived at the beach for the summer. This story is a product of her love for children, the beach and seashells.
Carter will sign books from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. next Saturday, March 15 at the store, 110 S. Main St.
Mashable has named Jenny Hubbard’s new book, “And We Stay,” to a list of nine young adult books to hold you over for ‘The Fault in Our Stars” due for a June 6 movie release.
It’s the No. 2 choice after “Winger” by Andrew Smith.
