FFTC BookHounds with John Coy, July 12, 2017

John Coy, author of Their Great Gift: Courage, Sacrifice, and Hope in a New Land and Two Old Potatoes and Me and Vroomaloom Zoom, sure knows how to engage an audience of multiple ages.  We had a blast listening and reading his stories TOGETHER with him.  We had both and younger and older club members sharing their thoughts about the books at our John Coy Storytime!
