Book Signing: Betty Shortt 
APRIL 9, 2016 11:00AM-2:00PM
Pre-Registration: Not Required  

Betty Shortt published The Weird Adventures of the Inman Twins in 2015, and peppered it with images from her own childhoold in the Missouri Ozarks in the 1950s to give her own grandaughters a glimpse of how she grew up. The novel tells the story of twelve year-old twins Betty and Bev, who have a knack for sniffing out danger, and for getting in over their heads.  When they follow a suspicious stranger, they find a situation far worse than they could have imagined. Meet author Betty Shortt at this special book signing!
