Author Sarah Marwil Lamstein will be at the Southborough Library next Wednesday to read from her children’s book Big Night for Salamanders. She’ll also show slides and a video, and will invite discussion. Here’s a bit about the book:

A boy takes charge to help his beloved salamanders. Evan can hardly wait for Big Night. During the first warm night rain of spring Big Night spotted salamanders by the hundreds crawl out of the woods and down to a natural pool across the road. There they will breed and lay their eggs. How can Evan and his parents help these delicate creatures cross the road in safety? Evan has the solution.

Sarah Marwil Lamstein delivers a moving story of genuine caring. Carol Benioff’s colorful and animated illustrations transport the reader into Evan’s world, where a child can do small yet wonderful things to help other creatures.

The event, sponsored by the Southborough Open Land Foundation, takes place on Wednesday, March 21 at 4:00 pm. The presentation is aimed at children ages 5 and up. For more information, visit the SOLF website (solf.org).
