Summary

An invitation to be a TEDx speaker in 2019, provided an opportunity for me to revisit my Star Patrol 'book' written in 1985 for a Young Author's Festival in New York City. Star Patrol is republished in its original format, as written in 1985, enhanced with cover design and layout by Mark Anderson, and a Foreword written by my son, Edmund E. Tetteh. The 12-year author from Brooklyn still loves dreaming about the future, and he described a Hero crime fighter, in Star Patrol, that solved a problem to save the world. Today, I'm a bit older, still an aspiring author, and I'm a heart and lung transplant surgeon and part of a Specialized Thoracic Adapted Recovery (STAR) team. Like our Star Patrol hero, I turned a passion into a purpose, and work every day to make the impossible possible, and save the world one patient at a time.

    In a slightly fantastical New York City, one very special library branch has been designated for possible closure. Bookish, socially awkward Pearl, the daughter of the librarian, can't imagine a world without the library—its books, its community of oddballs, its hominess. When the head of their Edna St. Vincent Millay statue goes missing, closure is closer than ever. But Pearl is determined to save the library. And with a ragtag neighborhood library crew—including a constantly tap-dancing girl who might just be her first friend, an older boy she has a crush on, and a pack of raccoons who can read and write—she just might be able to. With an eclectic cast of richly drawn characters, a hint of just-around-the-corner magic, footnotes, sidebars, and Jessixa Bagley's classic illustrations throughout, this warm-hearted, visually magnificent tale of reading and believing from beloved author Karen Romano Young tells of a world where what you want to believe can come true.
