Cheryl Bielli, local illustrator of “The Boy Who Never Threw Anything Out,” will read her humorous new children’s book every half hour from 1:30-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26 at Sherman’s in Caroga Lake as part of Caroga Arts Tree Lighting. The book is the story of a young boy whose growing piles of stuff eventually trap him in his bedroom and how he is able to solve his problem through recycling and donating. The story was written by Margie Peterson of Emmaus, PA and is published by Crave Press. It is available online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound Books and other national retailers. Signed books also will be available in limited supply at the tree lighting. More information on the book can be obtained via Messenger at Mrs. B’s Petite Galerie & Studio on Facebook.
