Springfield author Dinah Havens will sell and sign copies of her book, “The Last Classroom,” from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, in the Library Center concourse, 4653 S. Campbell Ave.
A single mother and her son from small Beachtown, Missouri, decide to indulge on a vacation to New York City. When an accident changes their lives, the teenage boy finds out that there is a large bill from the hospital waiting in the mailbox. Being the small population that Beachtown is, the boy finds only one place to earn pay: the slaughterhouse. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the ASPCA.
