AUBURN — Maine children’s author Lynn Plourde will be at the Auburn Public Library on Thursday, Oct. 11, as part of the Maggie Trafton Authors for Young Readers Evening series.

Plourde will share books interactively on slides and turn one into a simple play with audience members acting out parts.

The 6:30 p.m. event in the Androscoggin Community Room is free, but tickets are required so as not to exceed room capacity. Call the library at 333-6640. 

The Maggie Trafton Authors for Young Readers series is presented by the Maggie Trafton Endowment Fund. Plourde will share her love-of-literacy book, “The Dump Man’s Treasures,” in Maggie’s honor.

Plourde has had 27 children’s books published, including her newest “Only Cows Allowed,” “Dino Pets Go to School” and “Lost Trail,” a graphic novel co-authored with Donn Fendler. Her other books include “Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud,” “Moose, of Course!” and “Wild Child.” 

Plourde, a Skowhegan native, lives with her husband, Paul Knowles, in Winthrop.
