Oklahoma author and storyteller, Marilyn A. Hudson (left) presented a copy of her book to the director of the Kansas, Oklahoma Public Library, Ruth Hodges.
"I have been traveling this summer doing storytelling programs for community libraries." Hudson explained. " I put the library names in a hat and pulled out some winners to donate copies of my book, The Bones of Summer: A Chilling Collection of Tales."
Hudson, who has been a public as well as academic library professional, knows the value of the summer reading program in a community. "The summer reading program, and the motivational events planned, help encourage children to read and reinforce the value of the library to a healthy and positive community."
