Children’s book author/illustrator Josh Alves will be the special guest presenter Tuesday, July 22, at 10 a.m. at Stockton Springs Community Church, 20 Church St., as part of the library’s summer Fizz, Boom, Read series.

Mainer Alves is illustrator of D.L. Green’s hilarious “Zeke Meeks” chapter book series. His own series debut, “Lilly Bristol, Dinosaur Wrangler,” is about “The Town a Tyrannosaurus Wrecks.”

Alves’ first comic strip, “Zeke and Dent,” was published in the Bangor Daily News. Described as an encourager of creativity, Alves is sure to inspire creative sparks among the children and adults who attend the presentation.

The Fizz, Boom, Read series continues every Tuesday morning, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., until Aug. 12. Everyone is welcome. The programs are free, and refreshments will be served. For more information, call 567-4147.
