Share post:

C.H.I.L.D., which sponsors the summer reading room at Verona Pool, is bringing author Jane Lovascio to the pool today, Wednesday, June 29. Lovascio is the creator of the Casey and Bella series, which feature two real dogs, Casey, the Jack Russell Terrier and Bella, a Yorkie. Each book in the Casey and Bella book series supports a special charity benefiting children or animals.

The visit, which is geared to kids in kindergarten through fourth grade, will run from 1 to 2:30 p.m. over by the book shed at the front of the pool. The first 25 children to arrive will get a free autographed book. Additional books will be on sale, and Lovascio will be signing her books.

  1. Hi!
    It’s 12:55, we are at the Verona Pool waiting for the author to arrive. My daughter woke up 7 a.m and was ready to come to the pool very early to meet the author.
    Hope the kids enjoy it!
    Congratulations for such great idea for the kids to do here!
