Join author and illustrator Keith Negley at this free event for kids and families to celebrate his newest book, The Running Machine.

Before there were trains or cars or planes, people rode horses to travel
from place to place. Then came the year without a summer, when a cloud
of volcanic ash blocked the sun, and crops withered across half the
world. With no oats to eat, horses grew too weak to walk. everyone
despaired—how would they get around? But one day, a young forester had
a bright idea in the darkness…. Inspired by true events, The Running
Machine shows how resilience in the face of adversity can lead to
something wondrous.
