Hear Rebecca Fjelland Davis speak about her latest book, pick up a copy and have it signed at her upcoming visit to the Bemidji Public Library on Saturday, December 16 at 2:00 PM. There is no charge to attend. A normal summer day on a baseball field turns out to be much more for Grant O’Grady, the 13-year-old boy at the heart of “Slider’s Son,” the latest young adult novel from Rebecca Fjelland Davis. A bad smell on the field leads Grant and his father, Sheriff Slider O’Grady, to discover a body. Even worse, the dead man turns out to be Big Joe, the father of Grant’s best friend. Soon the mystery of who killed Big Joe is unfurling in front of Grant, who takes it upon himself to help his father find the killer. At its heart, “Slider’s Son” is a story of friendship, but the book also follows Grant and his experiences with racism, prejudice, and learning how to stand up for the oppressed. On top of all that, the book is about working hard to chase a dream. Don’t miss Davis’ upcoming visit to the Bemidji Public Library to learn more about the mystery and intrigue in “Slider’s Son.” To learn more about Davis and all her books, visit rebeccafjellanddavis.com.
