A book signing is set for Friday, November 2nd, from 2:00-5:00p.m. to introduce new author Dee Ashley and her book “The True Story of Eddie the Duck”.  The author will present a reading at 4:00 p.m.  Be sure to mark your calendars and attend this first public reading of this new book.

Dee Ashley retired from teaching first grade at Woodbury Central in Moville, Iowa ten years ago where she had taught over twenty years.  She realized there were very few true stories for lower elementary students.  When a third grader brought a duck egg to put in the incubator, one thing led to another and “The True Story of Eddie the Duck” was born.  Children will learn that giving up should never be an option.  The book is full of colored photos and follows the life of Eddie the Duck.
