Beasley signs book, children’s novel, at Bernie’s
“Circus Mirandus” available online and in stores

Claxton native Cassie Beasley has had her first book published, a children’s novel titled, “Circus Mirandus”. Beasley held a book signing event at Bernie’s Store in Bellville on Thursday, June 18, where approximately 60 people stopped by to have their books signed by the author.
Beasley has always wanted to be a writer and pursued her education with that objective in mind. “I went to Georgia Southern, I was in the writing department there and I … got my graduate degree in writing for children and young adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts,” she explained.
Beasley’s own love of reading as a child is what motivates her to write for children. “I've always loved reading books. My parents are readers, and they inspired me from an early age,” she said. 
Two years in the making, “Circus Mirandus” began as her graduate school thesis project. “My creative thesis was actually this project, so I worked on it with several established writers while I was there and I kept working on it afterward,” Beasley said.
“It’s a middle grade novel, a children’s fantasy, about a little boy named Micah whose grandfather is dying and he decides he can save him if he can just find the magical circus that he’s heard stories about,” Beasley explained. 
“Circus Mirandus” is geared for children ages nine - 12, but can be enjoyed by children - and adults - of all ages. It’s published by Penguin Random House and is available everywhere books are sold.
Beasley intends to write more children’s novels in the future.
