Join local author Anna Staniszewski at the Canton Public Library this weekend as she reads from her hilarious middle grade novel, "My Very UnFairy Tale Life." The book's main character, Jenny, is not your average 12 year old. Is your magical kingdom falling apart? Jenny is on the case, whether she likes it or not. Saving the world might sound exciting, but for Jenny it’s starting to get old — even staying in the real world long enough to take a math test would be a dream come true! And when you throw in bloodthirsty unicorns, psychotic clowns, and the most useless gnome sidekick ever, Jenny decides that enough is enough. She’s leaving the adventuring business and not looking back. Or…is she? Following the reading, the author will answer questions and sign copies of her book. You'll also be able to make unicorn masks and origami frogs, inspired by the characters in the book. Sat., Dec. 8, 2:30 p.m. Ages 8 and up. Free. Canton Public Library, 786 Washington St., Canton. www.town.canton.ma.us/library
