Begin your weekend at 11 am on Saturday, the 16th for a Book Signing by Ogdensburg writer, Barbara Briggs Ward, who will be reading from her unforgettable Christmas trilogy for adults featuring The Reindeer Keeper, (selected by Yahoo’s Christmas Book Club as their December, 2012 Book of the Month), The Snowman Maker, and ending with The Candle Giver. Barbara’s short stories have appeared in the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, Christmas Magic and Family Caregivers, plus Ladies’ Home Journal, Redbook, and The Crafts Report. Her short story, “The Great Berry Pie Cook-Off”, was a First Friday Fiction selection appearing on The Saturday Evening Post’s website. Barbara’s work includes her book, A Robin’s Snow (an Amish mystery/love story); a short story for children published in Highlights for Children, two picture books she both wrote and illustrated - The Really, Really Hairy Flight of Snarly Sally and Snarly Sally’s Garden of ABCs, as well as two picture books for the NYS Office of Mental Health. Also on Saturday, North Country Showcase will host “Sip & Shop” from 1 - 4 pm with Kaneb Orchards of Massena. Kaneb Orchards will provide samples of their award winning hard cider.
