A Spark to a Story: The Journey to A TINY PIECE OF SKY.

Shawn K. Stout is the author of several books for young readers, including the Not- So-Ordinary Girl series, the Penelope Crumb series, and most recently, A Tiny Piece of Sky, which was named a Bank Street Best Book of 2017. Stout will speak about the writing and research process for A Tiny Piece of Sky, a work of historical fiction that takes place in Maryland in 1939 and is inspired by true events of three sisters, one restaurant, and a (possible) German spy.  At the conclusion of her talk, she will answer questions and autograph her books.

After Ms. Stout’s talk, guests may take a tour of St. Thomas More Academy, meet the teachers and learn about the classical curriculum offered. Light refreshments will be served.
