ASTORIA — Local artist Sally Lackaff will hold a signing for her new children’s book, “Sarah’s Circus,” from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Astoria Visual Arts Gallery, 375 11th St.

A collaboration with late Astoria entrepreneur Robert “Jake” Jacob, the story is based on an event from Jake’s own childhood, re-imagined in the Great Depression. “Sarah’s Circus” — one of Jake’s final projects — is a colorful, thoughtful and lovingly detailed story of a little girl learning the true value of a day’s work in the circus.

The book is aimed at readers ages 8 through 12, but is for anyone who appreciates elaborate illustration and historical stories.

Meet Lackaff — the co-author and illustrator — and enjoy refreshments and other AVA art. A portion of the book sales will be donated to Jake’s pet project, the refurbishing of the Tourist No. 2 ferry.
