Children’s Book Signing Party at Greene’s Beans Café in Sparta, NJ
On Saturday, July 19th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Diana Tuorto of Stanhope will hold a book signing party for her newly released children’s novel, Janie’s New Legs, at Greene’s Beans Café, located at 31 Theatre Center in Sparta. This event is free to the public and will feature free door prizes, raffles, readings, and live music by members of local classic rock cover group Bill’s Garage Band.
Janie’s New Legs, which is appropriate for ages 8-14+, will be available for sale for $12. A portion of the proceeds from books sold during these events will benefit Somerset Hills Handicapped Riding Center in Oldwick, NJ.
Janie’s New Legs is the story of Silver, a shy pony, rescued from abuse and neglect, and Janie, a fragile young girl, paralyzed from a car accident. Janie meets Silver at a handicapped riding facility, where she goes to escape the constant confinement of her wheelchair. An extraordinary friendship soon develops and the two gradually begin the road to healing and recovery together.
Tuorto is co-hosting this event with Randi Clarken, author of the recently released humorous poetry collection, Mugging for the Camera.
In August, Tuorto will also release Luck of the Draw, a novel about an unsuccessful racehorse searching for his life’s purpose. Proceeds from this book will benefit ReRun, Inc., a non-profit Thoroughbred horse rescue based in Helmetta.
