Nine-Year-Old Author To Hold Book Signing

CLINTON — Christopher John will be signing copies his book, “Marvin The Shark” at the Clinton Book Shop on Sunday, June 24, from 1 to 3 p.m.

John is pleased to become a published author with his first book at age 9. He has been interested in writing and drawing since the moment he could hold a pencil. John started writing and illustrating books when he was five.

He has been known to recruit other kids to join him in writing funny stories and drawing pictures. “I hope my book inspires kids to be kind and to love reading as much as I do,” says John.

Recently, John made a splash at Book Expo America in New York City where debuted his book among other well-known published authors such as Suzanne Collins and Mo Willems. He autographed copies of “Marvin The Shark” until he ran out, and then continued to autograph postcards and bookmarks because interest was so high. John’s publisher, Little Valley Books®, was touting several young authors at the show in addition to Chris, including award-winning Finnoula Louise (age 7), and soon-to-be published Crystal Rivera (age 12).

Clinton Book Shop is located at 12 E. Main Street in Clinton. For more information, call 1-908-735-8811 or email Visit to learn more. A portion of book sales at this event will support a local elementary school library.
