The Staff and Friends of the Cos Cob Library host an AuthorsLive for children with local resident , Stacy Barnett Mozer, author of THE SWEET SPOT. The book is intended for readers in 2nd-6th grades and is the story of thirteen-year-old Sam Barrette, the only girl playing in the 13U league. " She’s had to listen to boys and people in the stands screaming things like 'Go play softball' all season just because she’s a girl. " All stakes rest on Sam’s performance at baseball training camp but a miscommunication sets the week up for potential disaster. Placed at the bottom with the weaker players, she will have to work her way up to A league. Can Sam show her coach and prove to herself that she can hold a bat with the All-Star boys?" Stacy will read a couple of scenes from her book, speak about how she develops her characters and there will be a fun activity where kids can create their own! Books will be available for sale and signing.
