Jane Lovascio, the author of the Casey and Bella children’s book series, was at the Verona Pool on Wednesday reading and signing books for her fans, courtesy of Verona’s learning non-profit, C.H.I.L.D. If your child is among them, you might also want to know about Lovascio’s writing contest, “Where Should Casey and Bella Go Next?”
The contest, which has a $500 grand prize, is open to third, fourth and fifth graders. To enter, your child should write a story of 1,000 words or less about Casey and Bella, adding three new characters to the story line. All of the contest details are here.
