Join local author/illustrator Marit Menzin for a presentation of her new book, "Song for Papa Crow," this weekend at Book Ends in Winchester. Little Crow loves to sing, and Papa Crow loves his song. But when Little Crow shares his crow songs with the other birds at the big old tree, they laugh and scatter. Maybe Mockingbird can teach him to sing songs with the finches, flycatchers, and cardinals and help him make some friends. But Little Crow should be careful what he wishes for... Using Mockingbird's tip, Little Crow quickly becomes the most popular bird on the block. But, in a moment of danger, he learns that singing someone else's song can have terrible consequences and that his own voice and his father's love is of the greatest value. Paired with colorful collage illustrations, this inspirational story is complemented by fun facts about North American birds and their sounds. The author will read her book and be available to sign copies. Sun., Dec. 2, 1 p.m. All ages. Free. Book Ends, 559 Main St., Winchester. www.bookendswinchester.com
