MAEVE Northern Calvert Community Book Swap

March 26 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

The nonprofit MAEVE Northern Calvert is hosting a community book swap from noon-2 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at Dunkirk District Park. The event is free, open to the public, and will include a reading by local author Paige Hunt of her newly published book “Bubble Baby.” For information, visit https://bit.ly/MaeveBookSwap.

MAEVE Northern Calvert is seeking donations of gently used books appropriate for all ages, children and adults (no reference materials please). Email northerncalvert@wearemaeve.org to donate books for the event.

“Supporting our local community is a core mission of our organization and this book swap is a great opportunity to bring the community together,” said MAEVE Northern Calvert President Sandra Golden. “Participants can donate books for others to enjoy and also replenish their home libraries. We’re pleased to have local author Paige Hunt participating in the event and look forward to meeting new people and sharing more about our organization.”

Author Paige Hunt attended Huntingtown Elementary School, Plum Point Middle School and Huntingtown High School. She studied early childhood education in college and worked with children for years as a paid professional and a volunteer. She recently described her new book in a post on Humans of Calvert County:

“‘Bubble Baby’ is created to bring a child’s view of the world to life, it is meant to bring a smile to the readers and listeners face and help adults (families) see a world (level of imagination) that they have forgotten. It’s based on real moments and silly comments between my daughter and I. The illustrations are based off of non-staged moments photographed with my daughter, which my friend/old schoolmate Kristen Ritter illustrated, paired with my written short story adding life and a character image of ‘Bubble Baby.’”

MAEVE Northern Calvert is a non-profit service organization offering a “village” for local mothers and providing service for the community. It organizes events, activities and support for members and their families and engages in service projects and charitable giving to support the community.
