The_Passover_Lamb_COVER.pngJoin author Linda Marshall at the Brookline Booksmith as reads from her latest book for children, "The Passover Lamb." When a sheep on her family's farm starts acting strangely, Miriam is worried. Spring lambing season is over, so what could be wrong with Snowball? Then -- surprise -- the sheep gives birth to triplets! When she realizes that the mother has enough milk for only two of her newborns, Miriam knows that the third baby will have to be bottle-fed every four hours. But it's almost Passover, and the family is about to leave for her grandparents' seder. And it's Miriam's turn this year to ask the Four Questions, which she's been practicing for weeks. When Miriam's father decides that they must stay home to care for the lamb, it's up to Miriam to think of a clever and -- hilariously fitting -- way to rescue both the baby lamb and her family's holiday. The author based this out-of-the-ordinary Passover tale on a true event that took place on her own farm, weaving in details about sheep farming and infusing it with the warmth shared by a loving family. The author will read her book, answer questions, and be available to sign copies. Sun., March 10, 2 p.m. All ages. Free. Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St., Brookline. www.brooklinebooksmith.com
