Porter Square Books is delighted to welcome children's book author Sarah Albee for a signing of Fairy Tale Science, in which she asks scientific questions about 25 fairy tales ("Could Rapunzel's hair support the weight of a prince?") and invites kids to participate in hands-on experiments to uncover the answers. The signing will take place on Sunday, April 3 at 11am at Porter Square Books: Cambridge Edition. Books are available for purchase from our website or at the event, or you can bring your own copy from home to be signed by the author. Either way, we hope to see you there!
