Historic New England, the oldest, largest and most comprehensive independent preservation organization in the United States, will collaborate with Ruth’s House and the Haverhill Public Library for a children’s book drive and storytime featuring author Josh Funk.

Funk will read from his award-winning “Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast” series. Those who attend are asked to bring and donate a gently used children’s book for Ruth’s House as a way to pass on the joy of reading to another family.

Funk is a software engineer and a prolific children’s book author who often blends information from his work life into his stories.

The book drive/storytime is Saturday, May 18, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Haverhill Public Library, 99 Main St. Funk’s readings will continue until 1 p.m., and the entire event will end by 2.
