What do bald men in skirts, ancient geeks, pompous popes, and bickering bishops have
in common? They all took part in shaping the calendar that hangs on your wall. Together with a host of
famous and not-so-famous others, adjusted, fine-tuned, and tinkered around with what would eventually
become the western world's most popular tool for keeping track of time.

When a crotchety, down-on-his-luck old man turns up as a temporary employee in Lindsie's father's bookshop,
she and her friend Evan feel sorry for him. But after they follow him to his makeshift home, Mr. S. Kronos (aka
Father Time) drags them on a wild ride through five thousand years of hilarious history, insisting they meet the
calendar's creators. Lindsie and Evan will never take the calendar for granted again.

Jennifer Johnson Garrity grew up in Portland, Oregon. She has never, to her dismay, traveled through time, but she has been privileged to travel around much of the United States and Europe. Jennifer currently resides in southern Germany. She is also the author of The Bushwacker.

Lloyd James hails from the Midwest. He received a B.A. in theater from a small liberal-arts college in New Mexico. He acts in the theater when his schedule permits and spends much of his free time working in his garden. He lives in Virginia with his wife and son.
