WATERVILLE — Local children’s book author Jeanine Deas will be signing copies of her new book, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Where You Are” at an appearance at Retail Therapy Consignment Boutique, 270 Kennedy Memorial Drive, Waterville, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 24. Masks, social-distancing and a limited number of customers at any given time will be required. Personally-signed copies of “Twinkle, Twinkle Where You Are” and the author’s previous book, “Anna’s Little Buddy,” will be available for $10 each, as stated in a news release.

” ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Where You Are’ is about love and longing,” said Deas. “During COVID — and after that — it offers a magical way for children (and adults) to endure times of isolation and separation from family and friends. My desire is that readers will come to understand that when distance, time or even death separate us physically from those we love, we are always connected through the ever-present energy of our relationship. It’s the ‘twinkle’ that gives us hope.”
