Long Island author Sarah Beth Durst will share her newest middle-grade novel, SPY RING (HarperCollins / Clarion Books). SPY RING is about two modern-day kids who discover the truth about real-life American Revolutionary War-era spy Anna Smith Strong (America's first female spy!) through a treasure-hunt adventure in their hometown of Setauket, New York. It weaves historical fact throughout a contemporary fictional adventure, and it encourages young readers to celebrate the history that surrounds them, while highlighting lesser-known heroes who lived right here on Long Island. In a starred review, Kirkus called SPY RING: "Compelling and fascinating; brings history to life."
