Author Salley Chinn and illustrators Harriet Anderson, Cindy Moore, and Carolyn Turner will all be available to present their children’s book “Seth and the Secret of the Butterfly.”

The book describes imagining what it would be like to meet a talking butterfly who whispers a life-changing secret. The story tells of five special needs children who meet a magical butterfly named Lilly, who teaches the children how to turn sadness into joy and challenges into dreams. “Seth and the Secret of the Butterfly” inspires all children to celebrate who they are and to dream of what they might become.

The event will include cookies, hot cider, and tea. The NRCC Library is located in Martin Hall on NRCC’s campus in Dublin.
