(MURFREESBORO) At 10:00 o'clock Tuesday morning, March 10, 2020, the Linebaugh Public Library is hosting local author Beth Brock for a book signing of her new children's book My Name is Ryan. It tells the story of a little boy who is similar to other children in many ways, but very different in others.
My Name Is Ryan is the story of a very special boy with lots of issues. He is normal in so many ways, but is also disabled in so many ways. He knows he is different, but he is the happiest little guy you would want to know.
Beth is new to the literary world. This is her first children's book, which was inspired by her special needs grandson. She is a retired real estate paralegal; and in a former life taught ballet, tap and jazz to children. Beth lives outside Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and loves spending time with her grown children and grandchildren, who live close by. When she is not writing, she loves sewing, quilting and tap dancing.
This is Ryan's first book, but you never know where this will lead. He is a student at Blackman Middle School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is also active in C.A.P.E. (Challenged Athletes Playing Equally), supports Tucker's House, a non-profit, and participates in the Rutherford County, Tennessee Special Olympics thru School. He is always busy.
Brock and Ryan will be selling copies of their book for $22.99 each (plus tax). Cash, check or PayPal accepted.
