The Erie Canal Discovery Center, 24 Church St., Lockport, welcomes local author Marilyn Foote, who will present a free, family friendly, program and book reading at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15, from her children's book series "Puddinhead."
Foote is no stranger to children, having taught elementary school for 42 years in urban and suburban communities, serving 20 years overseas and 23 years in Buffalo.
Foote was chosen in 2007 as one of only 10 authors to be published in her genre of children's Christian literature by Tate Publications. Her fourth book in the "Puddinhead" series, "Puddinhead and the Christmas Poem," debuted in 2011. She was also honored to be selected as a finalist for the International Book Award in 2012.
