Annette McCollough Myers, local National Indie Excellence Award winning author, will sign copies of her recently published children’s book at Book Loft on Saturday, November 7 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The Book entitled Delaney’s Adventures – with Friends was co-written with her 10-year-old granddaughter, Delaney Ann Myers. Delaney is a 4th grade honor student at Jacob G. Smith Elementary School in Savannah, Georgia. She is the daughter of Donald and Dedria Roberts Myers of Savannah, Georgia.

Delaney’s Adventures – with Friends is a fun and inspiring colorful, easy reading, picture storybook aimed at young to middle-school-aged children to encourage reading and the use of vocabulary words, to learn, explore and overall have fun.
In the midst of the pandemic, this non-fiction story was written out of Delaney’s desire to learn, explore, ask questions and to talk openly about her surroundings, daily activities and experiences.

Retired librarian and author of several highly lauded books, Marsha Dean Phelts, says, “Delaney’s Adventures with Friends tells of a 10-year journey in the life of Delaney Ann Myers. The authors, Annette Myers and Delaney Ann Myers (grandmother and granddaughter), beautifully illustrate through stories and pictures Delaney’s memorable adventures with family, friends, and community. The list of ‘Questions to help you create your own Adventures’ will inspire and motivate young readers to hold on to their keepsakes and write and publish their own life experience stories. Myers & Myers are positive mentors and role models. This book rates a high five stars out of five stars!!”

And Jane R Wood, author of five award winning juvenile fiction books, says, “…a feel-good book describing a young girl’s account of growing up —rich with personal notes and photos showing a loving family, themed birthday celebrations, friendships, and a youthful outlook on life. As a former educator, I especially like the vocabulary words and discussion questions meant to engage school-aged readers.”

Author Delaney Ann Myers.

Published by Giro di Mondo Publishing of Fernandina Beach, the book was released Sunday, October 25 at Delaney’s 10th birthday and book signing party at Red Gate Farms Trail in Savannah, Georgia.
