Pauline Daniel, author of Tuesdays with Jack, about a grandmother’s love and a little boy’s brilliance, will read from her book on Tuesday at the downtown library from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and on Wednesday at Chapters book store in Aberdeen from noon to 3 p.m.
The book began as a Facebook post Daniel made every Tuesday after spending the day with her grandson, Jack. Tuesdays have been their day since he was baby. When Jack started talking, Daniel said, he uttered brilliant, articulate and imaginative queries and comments.
Before long, Tuesdays with Jack had a following and Daniel’s readers suggested she share the stories with the world. On the day Jack went to kindergarten, Daniel began to write the book that has been published by Granville Island Publishing.
