Local author, Pamilla Formeller, will share her new children’s book, Miracle on Fifth, during a special storytime at the Jacksonville Library.
Miracle on Fifth is a Christmas story about a lonely, little boy named Andy Austin who possesses truly magical, musical talents. However, he sometimes finds it difficult to remain true to his talents when teased and bullied. As the community works feverishly raising funds to save a historical church and its 100-year-old pipe organ from demolition, another disaster strikes. Winner of the children’s literature category of the Sno-Isles libraries’ “Spirit of Writing” contest, Miracle on Fifth was inspired by the true story of the demolition of the First United Methodist Church located in Seattle, Washington.

She later served as editor for the California Accountant’s magazine and subsequently the Sacramento Building Industry Association’s magazine. Now retired, Formeller writes children’s books and resides in Whidbey Island, Washington and Jacksonville, Oregon.
