In recognition of International Children’s Book Day on Tuesday, April 2, Altrusa of the Central Coast and its sponsored youth volunteer organization, ASTRA of Righetti High School, will be hosting a free children’s event from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Orcutt Public Library, 175 S. Broadway in Old Orcutt. Children age 8 and up are invited.

The program will feature local author F.C. Shaw, who recently published “Sherlock Academy: The Baker Street Underground,” the fourth book in her mystery series.

Her other books include the original “Sherlock Academy,” ranked in the top 50 books for children at, and “Sherlock Academy: Watson’s Case.” Shaw will be selling and signing books after the program.
