Introducing The Story Collector by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb

Kristin O'Donnell Tubb was the first author to make me feel welcome among my local SCBWI chapter members, so I'll always have a special place in my heart for her. I couldn't think of anyone more deserving for the honor of writing the true story of a young girl who grew up in the New York Public Library. And it's no surprise that the book is getting a LOTTTTT of buzz! Today is the day you can get your own copy. Scroll down to read all about it and click to buy!


In the tradition of E. L. Konisburg, this middle-grade mystery adventure is inspired by the real life of Viviani Joffre Fedeler, born and raised in the New York Public Library.

Eleven-year-old Viviani Fedeler has spent her whole life in the New York Public Library. She knows every room by heart, except the ones her father keeps locked. When Viviani becomes convinced that the library is haunted, new girl Merit Mubarak makes fun of her. So Viviani decides to play a harmless little prank, roping her older brothers and best friend Eva to help out.

But what begins as a joke quickly gets out of hand, and soon Viviani and her friends have to solve two big mysteries: Is the Library truly haunted? And what happened to the expensive new stamp collection? It's up to Viviani, Eva, and Merit (reluctantly) to find out.
