ALBION – Josie Waverly, a popular local singer, is also a children’s book author. She visited Albion on Thursday evening to share the story of “Josie the Singing Butterfly” and also to promote early childhood literacy.

The Albion school district, Community Action of Orleans & Genesee and the Albion Rotary Club partnered to run literacy workshops on four recent Thursdays. March 31 was the conclusion of the series.

In Josie the Singing Butterfly, the main character Josie meets a different animal in every story and Josie helps them resolve problems. Waverly has written four stories in the series and each book has a life lesson.
