Popular children’s book author of Sadie McGrady Runs for President is making a campaign stop in Highland Park at Beanstalk Toyland & Bookstore (654 Central Avenue) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 29th. Empowering today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders, Mary Parry will be reading and signing copies of her election picture book and encouraging young girls to explore becoming candidates and leaders.
Kids will also hear City of Highland Park Councilman, Alyssa Knobel, discuss the importance for girls to get involved in our community, and will have the opportunity to put democracy into action as they taste and vote for their favorite treats. Rumor also has it Peyton the guinea pig, another popular character featured in the book, may make a surprise appearance as well.
