Students present aunt

From School Reports

Students Delaina Gaskin and Dylan Gaskin presented the children’s book “Turtles Big Day” to Eupora Elementary School Librarian Vonda Burton last spring to be placed in the school library.

“Turtles Big Day” was written by Tamora L. Blount, an aunt to third- grader Delaina and seventh-grader Dylan. Blount is a longtime resident of Calhoun County and has published this book as her first children’s book.

The book is being printed in 10 languages and can be found at Authorhouse.com website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Books-A- Million and many more bookstores.

She has also had her second book on shelves since April. The title of her second children’s book is “Poor Little Squirrel.”
