The Castle in the Attic
On Sunday, June 8 at 2:30 p.m., acclaimed author Elizabeth Winthrop talks about her creative process in writing fiction for all ages. Elizabeth will read from her works for children, including The Castle in the Attic and Counting on Grace, and sign copies of her books.
As the daughter of journalist Stewart Alsop and the great grand-niece of Theodore Roosevelt, Elizabeth always knew the power of words. She has parlayed that knowledge into over 60 books and stories for readers of all ages. Her middle-grade novels The Castle in the Attic and its sequel The Battle for the Castle are considered children's classics.
The Castle in the Attic is the story of a model castle given to a boy by his beloved housekeeper. The knight belonging to the castle is said to be under a spell and must be helped by the boy to dispel fears and restore the proper order of the land.
In her appearance at the Bank Street Bookstore, Elizabeth will discuss how she combines the real world with magical elements to create books with believable characters and settings.
