Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, will visit New Canaan Library on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 3 p.m. for tea, conversation and an introduction to her new book, "Ballerina Rosie."

According to a summary of the book, more than anything, Rosie loves to dance and wants to be a prima ballerina. But when she enrolls in ballet school, she can't seem to master the plie or balance her arabesque. Is there any hope for Rosie's big dreams? With text from Ferguson and illustrations from Caldecott honoree Diane Goode, the story of an aspiring dancer will inspire and delight young readers.

Ferguson is the author of several children's books, including "Tea for Ruby," illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, and the Little Red series, as well as a memoir, "Finding Sarah." The Duchess of York is a spokesperson for many charitable organizations, including Children in Crisis. She has two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
