“Mikado’s Secret: Path to the Purple Moon” Author to Visit Library on Tuesday

The Olean Public Library is proud to welcome Sacynda S.D. Shields, author of “Mikado’s Secret:  Path to the Purple Moon”, to speak about her book, her experience with writing and publishing, and to autograph books.  No sign up is required to attend this free event on Tuesday, August 7 at 7:00pm in the library’s Art Gallery.

S.D. Shields is an energetic 16 year old high school sophomore.  She has a vast imagination and creative art ability.  The book is entirely hers from the words on the page to the illustrations and cover art.  She deals with dyslexia and ADD, but never let that stop her from pursuing her dream of publishing.  “I’d like to encourage other kids not to let anything stand in their way either,”  she says.  “Follow your dreams.  You have to believe in yourself.”  She loves animals and loves to ride horses, especially dressage.  She wrote her book when she was 15 years old and lives with her mom, 3 dogs, and 2 cats in Randolph, New York.  She has a second book in the works and hopes to send it to the publisher soon.

For more information please call the Olean Public Library, 716-372-0200.  This program is sponsored by the Olean Public Library and is free to the public.
