Classics Revisited Free Library Adventure

$13.30 – $16.60

About the Event

Adventures by the Book is pleased to partner with the Carlsbad City Library for a Classics Revisited Free Library Adventure with engaging authors Sarah McCoy, Jenne Bergstrom, and Miko Osada. Join us as we revisit the classics and fall back in love with stories, both old and new.  Return to Green Gables with Sarah, but to a time before Anne in Marilla of Green Gables. Then, get inspired to cook with Jenne and Miko, with recipes that come straight out of Little Women with The Little Women Cookbook.

This free Adventure includes a book discussion with both authors, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the authors up close and personal.

To schedule a book club visit with Sarah or any of our authors on NovelNetwork:


Jenne Bergstrom was raised by two summer camp directors but spent all her time reading instead of being outdoors. She went into a tiny one-room schoolhouse in a charming mountain town but always dreamed of living in a glamorous big city. Nowadays, she lives in a tiny, tiny house in “big city” San Diego, CA and runs a library in yet another charming mountain town. She is the co-founder of the literary culinary blog 36eggs.com, where they recreate foods and experiences from favorite books. Her favorite Little Women character is Aunt March.

Miko Osada is a librarian for kids and teens, in a suburb just east of San Diego. She lives with her wife and three cats, Figgy, Piggy, and Squeazle. Miko is the co-creator of 36eggs.com. Little Women was one of her favorite stories growing up, and she owns four copies of the book— two in Japanese (her first language) and two in English. Miko is a proud member of Slytherin House, and the March sister she relates to most is Amy.
