Natchez — Noted Mississippi author, educator and speaker, Kathy Chase Young will be at Cover to Cover Books in Natchez to personalize her new children’s book, “In a Mississippi Winter,”from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1.

Following her 2005 release of “The Gift,” Young turns her literary attention from the southern kitchen to the southern classroom.

“That doesn’t look anything like wintertime where I live,” thinks a clever child in Miss Bonnie’s fictional class.

“In a Mississippi Winter,” the children are confused as their teacher shares pictures of winter, complete with snowmen, ice skates and sleds.

“In a Mississippi Winter” also includes fun winter activity suggestions specially designed for home or the classroom.

There are also special pages for children to record their own thoughts and pictures of our unique Mississippi winter.
