Salt Spring writer Margaret Sullivan launches debut children’s book,
Jacinta’s Orderly World.

Reading Friday, July 12th, 10AM
Salt Spring Library

“Jacinta likes to arrange her books and toys. She likes to find places for things that are just where they belong.”
On an outing with her father, she has a chance meeting with an overturned oil can, and learns to see rainbows where she once saw an awful mess. A visit to their car mechanic shows her that there can be efficiency in what at first seems like chaos.

Here’s what Rose Abdo, star of Gilmore Girls and Hacks, had to say about Jacinta: “I found this story so very comforting and entertaining. I related to Jacinta! I want to place this book lovingly, in perfect order on my shelf! Thank you, Margaret Sullivan from those of us who find peace and joy in bringing a little order to a chaotic world.”

Jamie Wollam, father, and songwriter / drummer for rock band Tears for Fears wrote of Jacinta: “Wholly engaging both for the reader and the listener. There’s a bit of Jacinta in every child, and every child will feel relief to know that it is alright to want to manage your little piece of the world.”

Jan Chindlund, retired Head of Libraries, Columbia College Chicago said: "Children seek ways to understand their world. One way is to create an environment they can control. Jacinta does just that, but learns that order is relative and unique to each being. What a delightful tale about the mind of a delightful child. And the whimsical illustrations bring the story to life."

Signed copies available.

Books will be available for purchase at the reading. Alternatively Jacinta’s Orderly World may be found on Amazon, Old Salty Shop and Salt Spring Books.
