Author announcement: Angeli Perrow

Here's another author coming to the Books in Boothbay Festival this summer:

Children's author Angeli Perrow  is the author of four picture books and a mystery novel for children. Her love of lighthouses and the history surrounding them led to the writing of Captain's Castaway, Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue, and Sirius the Dog Star, which are all based on true events at Maine lighthouses. The Lightkeeper's Key weaves Maine lighthouse legends into a page-turning mystery that thrills children with ghosts, a treasure hunt, a secret code, and lots of adventure. Her newest book, Many Hands, takes a different path as it relates the tale of a Penobscot Indian girl who dreams of being a master basket maker and learns the importance of community.

Angeli is an art teacher in Hampden, Maine, where she lives with her family. She is a former classroom teacher, newspaper reporter and editor and nautical products artist. She enjoys gardening, hiking, biking, Celtic music and Irish dancing.
