We are so proud of Melissa Goodwin, an instructor at The Yoga Sanctuary and accomplished children’s book author. In fact, Melissa has been published extensively in children’s and national magazines and won a Writer’s Digest Annual Poetry Competition Award in 2010.

Melissa grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, where she spent a happy childhood living in her imagination and writing stories in her head. It was only a matter of time before those stories spilled out onto the written page. Melissa’s books The Christmas Village and its sequel, Return to Canterbury, are the culmination of her lifelong dream to write the kind of books she loved to read as a child.

Melissa’s books are targeted to readers ages eight and up, but they are also an adventure the whole family will love, filled with suspense, secrets and surprises to the very last page. Come join Melissa at Copperfish bookstore on Thursday, December 12th, 5:30 to 6:30 pm for their “get in the holiday spirit” kickoff. Melissa will be reading from the The Christmas Village and launching its sequel Return to Canterbury. She will also be signing books and donating $1 from the sale of each book to the Yah Yah Girls Backpack Kidz Program.

See you there!
