Two of our favorite picture book authors have new books - and they're bringing them to Face in a Book! Join us on March 16th from noon-1:30 to meet Lori Mortensen and Linda Joy Singleton as we celebrate their new offerings.
Lori Mortensen's Away With Words: The Daring Story of Isabella Bird tells the story of a fascinating woman from Victorian England who brushed off her restrictive upbringing to become an explorer, writer, photographer, and naturalist - and the first female member of the Royal Geographic Society. This terrific picture book biography takes readers around the world with the intrepid Isabella Bird, and offers a story that will excite and inspire.
Linda Joy Singleton's colorful picture book Crane & Crane is an imaginative look at how the mechanical world mirrors the natural one. A sandhill crane lifts a stick. A construction crane lifts a log. The two cranes grab, stretch, and stack, working through bad weather and difficult obstacles toward their end goal: building a home for a new family.
Don't miss the fun!
