Meet Children’s Author Susan Hood

Children’s author, Susan Hood, will be visiting the Community Room at the Reading Public Library on Friday, May 5 at 7:00 pm. She has written over twenty books for children. Before becoming an author of children’s books, Hood worked as an editor at various content creation organizations including Sesame Workshop, Scholastic, and Nick Jr. magazine.

Hood will make a presentation about her research and writing for her latest nonfiction picture book, Ada’s Violin: The Story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay, a true account of how one teacher brought hope and joy to children through music. In the book, the music is played on instruments made out of recycled garbage.

This presentation is recommended for families with children grades three and up. Also, anyone in the community who is interested in other cultures, concerned about waste and the environment, or believes in the hope and power of music will appreciate the story of Ada’s recycled orchestra. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Information can be found at
