ACWORTH, Ga. -- The author of a new children's book called "My Friend Noah" will be signing copies of her book in Acworth next weekend.

Barbara Tarnow lives in White, Ga. She will be at the Staples on Cobb Parkway from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 30.

"My Friend Noah" is about a boy named Zac who is startled by the actions of Noah, a kid in his first grade class. First Noah shakes his hand, then he gives Zac a big hug.

Zac soon learns that Noah talks funny too. That's when his teacher explains that Noah has Down syndrome.

"My Friend Noah" teaches children that people who talk and act a little differently can still be very good friends.
