Keene - Daphne Kalmar signing "A Stitch in Time"

Donut is an eleven-year-old geography buff who keeps her taxidermied mice hidden in her late mother’s hope chest. Her pops passed away, leaving her an orphan. Aunt Agnes has moved in, bringing along her lumpy oatmeal, her knitting, and a plan to drag Donut off to Boston forever. Donut stands to lose everything: her friends, her village, her home, and the Vermont woods where memories of her pops are stored up. While Donut dodges the ache of missing her pops, she and her best friend, Tiny, plan how to keep her where she belongs. A Stitch in Time is shot through with gorgeous, evocative language and shines a light on Donut’s fierce and grieving heart.
