Reporting by WVUA 23’s Monae Stevens

Selma author Edie Delp was at Barnes & Noble Midtown Village on Saturday for a book signing and reading for her newest children’s book, The Magic Wishing Rock.

The Magic Wishing Rock is about a girl named Bella who finds a rock that can grant her one wish. Bella thinks about all the things that she could possibly wish for. This story is inspired by a story that Delp has told her granddaughter multiple times prior to writing the book. She wanted the book to make children carefully think about what their one wish would be if they were put in Bella’s position.

“It gives the child a chance to think beyond the immediate now,” Delp said. “But what would happen as a consequence to our actions.”

The book is now available at Barnes & Noble. To purchase it online, click here.
