Booksigning with Danna Smith and Linda Whalen

We're thrilled to host a double-booksigning for Danna Smith and Linda Whalen, featuring two wonderful new books from these great children's authors!

Join a girl and her father, a falconer at a medieval castle, as they take a goshawk out for a flight in Danna's The Hawk of the Castle. Preparation for the flight - from the hawk's hood and bells to the falconer's gloves - culminate in a dramatic demonstration of beauty and skill. Poetic storytelling, majestic artwork, and the details of the long-ago art of falconry will capture young imaginations in a most immediate way.

In Linda's Little Red Rolls Away, Little Red Barn wakes up to find his animal friends are gone and he's empty and alone. When he's put on a truck and transported across the country, he feels anxious - and a little afraid. Where is he going? Who will be there to greet him? When Little Red reaches his new home, he finds things are even better than before. This charming tale of relocation and adjustment is sure to assure young readers facing changes in their lives.
