Storytime with Cornelia Spelman, author of Everybody's Somewhere

Evanston mother and grandmother Cornelia Maude Spelman, a clinical social worker, is the author of a memoir and ten previous picture books for children, including the popular "The Way I Feel" series.

Her new book expands the range of her writing for children: In playful, bouncy rhymes that children and parents will have fun saying out loud, Everybody's Somewhere offers children a way to think about other people in other places doing different things; to be delighted by new ideas, and to be reassured that everyone is important and sharing the same world. Kirkus Reviews said "the singsong text lulls, making this an altogether comforting package." Cornelia will join Nina for our regular Saturday storytime as our Small Business Saturday Celebrity Visiting Author.
