Log College Author Hits the Road for Summer Book Signings

Victoria Johnson will be in Wyncote in Saturday and Neshaminy in August to promote "The Lemonade Standoff."

After a few weeks of summer vacation, its back to the bookstores for 12-year-old Victoria Johnson as she continues to promote the amazing success of her self-penned children's book, The Lemonade Standoff.

The student will appear at CLC Bookcenter in the Cedarbrook Plaza, 1000 S. Easton Road, Wyncote, this Saturday, 1-3 p.m. to sign copies, then travels to at the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem August 18, 1-3 p.m.

The story of Keenah and Shay's attempt to open a summertime lemonade stand and compete against their sworn enemy, Brianna, teaches young readers the importance of honesty and respect. 

Victoria's book inspired first-grader Shalynn Prosser, a student at in Glenside, to create a poster illustrating the book as part of a class project.

Even as she continues spreading the word , Victoria has not stopped writing. One of her short stories has been picked up by Focus on the Family's Clubhouse Magazine, a publication aimed at young readers. The story, set to publish in August, is about a soldier who is also the mother of two girls. When she comes home from war as an amputee, her oldest daughter is inspired by her courage to join the military.
