For those who love a great family story, you won't want to miss the chance to get a signed copy of a terrific new picture book, Down by the River - and meet both the author and illustrator! The story follows Art, who loves spending time on the river with Grandpa and Mom, learning about fly-fishing and listening to Grandpa's stories. Packing their rods, reels, fly boxes - and chocolate chip cookies - they head out for the river, Art picturing a big trout on the end of his liine. But hearing the story about Mom's first big catch makes Art worry if he'll be able to hook a fish. With patience, he lands a beautiful brown trout. This beautifully illustrated story of a perfect day in nature is followed with fascinating informational pages on fly fishing, from catch-and-release practices to equipment.
Join us to meet author Andrew Weiner and illustrator April Chu on Sunday, June 3rd, 11 am - 1 pm. Andrew's bringing along some special flies and equipment for show-and-tell - and he might tell a story or two himself!
