The Dover Public Library will offer a free family concert, starring Eric Litwin, a song-singing, guitar-strumming, number-one New York Times Best Selling author who brings early literacy and music together. 
He is the original author of the "Pete the Cat" series as well as the author of "The Nuts" and "Groovy Joe Litwin's" books, which have sold more than 10 million copies, have been translated into 15 languages and have won 19 literacy awards including a Theodor Geisel Seuss Honor Award. 
The concert, sponsored by the Dover Public Library, Dover First United Methodist Church and the Dover Exchange Club, will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 6 p.m. at Dover First United Methodist Church, 1725 N. Wooster Ave., Dover.
Tickets are free and may be picked up in the children's department at the Dover Public Library on a first come, first served basis. Ticket reservations also may be made by calling 330-343-6123 ext. 4.
"We ask that individuals limit the number of tickets they take/request to the number of people who will be attending with them," said Dani Gustavich, children's librarian. "We had 450 tickets available, and there are only a small number left."
Doors will open at 5:15 p.m., and Everything Education from Canton will provide Litwin's books for purchase. A book-signing will occur after the performance. Each child will receive a free paperback copy of "Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs," due to a donation by the Dover Exchange Club.
Litwin will speak at Dover Public Library's Early Literacy Workshop, which will be held at Dover First United Methodist Church to a sold-out crowd of librarians and educators from all over Ohio on Wednesday, Dec. 13. Lindsay Bonilla of World of Difference and Julia Shaheen of the Stark County District Library also will speak. 
The public may call 330-343-6123 for more information.
