DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. ? Come to the Dobbs Ferry Library on Tuesday and hear best-selling children's author Adam Gidwitz discuss his more recent book about how young people deal with the dark side of fairy tales.

Gidwitz, a self-professed middle-school problem child, "spent my entire middle school career in the principal's office. But he recovered to pursue an education in English literature before teaching second grade for a short time in a New York elementary school.

According to Gidwitz's website , he told his students stories at lunch and recess and story time, and spent his evenings meeting writers and reading bags full of children's books. A San Francisco native, he now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Space for the event is limited. Doors open at 4:15 p.m. For more information, log on to the Dobbs Ferry Library website's Teen page .
