Told mostly through letters to her great uncle, abuelita, and other chicken ownersfeaturing informative information about actual chicken carelocal librarian Kelly Jones' quirky debut about a determined girl and her super-powered chickens is a delight. Joining us for a reading and signing, Jones will share her fun new book with us.
