That Boy, Jack by Janeen Brian
If you could meet and listen to a famous children's author read from her latest book, hear some beautiful Celtic singing and inspirational music, followed with Cornish Tea and refreshments, you'd want to check out this literary event, wouldn't you?

That Boy, Jack is the story of Jack and Gilbert, two best friends who made a promise when they were younger to work in the copper mines, just like their fathers, as is the custom of Cornish immigrants. Now at age twelve, Gilbert is compelled to leave school and earn a wage. Jack fears working underground. He wants to keep his pact, but struggles with his fear, as deep down in his heart he wants to seek another path. Will Jack have the courage to follow his heart, or will he keep his promise to Gilbert?
