Spokane Valley Hastings Books Music and Videos is kicking off a summer reading program with a visit from children’s author Robert Elmer on Saturday.
Elmer, who has written four books for young readers, including “Adventure Down Under” and “HyperLinkz,” will share tips on writing books and answer questions.
The presentation begins at 3 p.m. and leads into spring and summer activities that emphasize topics of interest to kids, including exercise, music and reading.
Children and teenagers can sign up for Hastings Summer Book Club and receive discounts on books from May 1 through Aug. 31. Kids who write a two-sentence review on books they’ve read qualify for monthly and end-of-the-summer drawings.
Winners receive Hastings’ gift cards valued up to $100. The top winner receives a personal-use computer and a computer for his or her school.
