Penn State Grad Writes Bestselling Children’s Book

Not every worthwhile event during THON weekend will be taking place at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Ariela Rossberg, a 2010 Penn State graduate, wrote a children’s book titled “The Gray Days” with illustrations by second and third graders at Oaks School #3 in Oceanside, New York. Rossberg will take part in a reading event at Webster’s on February 16 at 4 p.m.

The book just made Amazon’s Best Seller Children’s Book list at number 26, and tells the tale of James, a little boy who lives in a world devoid of color and imagination. He heard stories of the power of imagination and set off on a journey to find it again, filled with hope.

When Rossberg was a Penn State student, she was extremely involved in THON, which is why she is holding the event at Webster’s as part of “The Gray Days” book tour. Her stop in State College will be a welcome break for parents and children who want to get away from the BJC, even for just a little while.

Rossberg will not only read her book, but will lead attendees in an imagination workshop so that children can learn just how powerful their imaginations can be.

And until February 17, a portion of all the proceeds from the book sold on Amazon will go to the Four Diamonds Fund. Some proceeds from books sold at Webster’s will also go to the Four Diamonds Fund.

More information about the book can be found on Facebook, and selected pages can be found on its Amazon page using the “Search inside the book” feature.
