Author Kathy Girlus will be available to sign her new children's book, "You Don't Love Me Anymore" at the LeClaire Information Center on Dec. 23, 2012, from 11a.m. to 1p.m. The Information Center is located at 122 N. Cody Road in LeClaire, Iowa.

"Have you ever experienced a magical day when every moment was like a giant sugar cookie with frosting on the top?" says Girlus. "Tanya's day in this book feels more like a plate of lima beans and is far from a magical day. I hope you will agree that Tanya is a tenacious, creative, clever and delightful example of a child facing a not so perfect day."

Girlus was in the teaching profession for more than 30 years and has always enjoyed working with children. The story of Tanya in "You Don't Love Me Anymore" comes from her experience of raising two children. The book is illustrated by artist Jean Downey.

Girlus now lives in LeClaire and enjoys all the charm the small river town has to offer.

For more information, please contact Girlus at 563-508-0352 or email kathygirlus@msn.com.
