Author Event at the Elephant’s Trunk this Saturday!
Join us Saturday, March 5th for a storytime event with author and illustrator Pat Lowery Collins. Pat will read her picturebook I Am An Artist, which was illustrated by Robin Brickman. When I Am An Artist was published in 1994 it won the Children's Book Committee at Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year. It was also selected as a Reading Rainbow Book!
Pat will also read from her newest novel for young readers, Daughter of Winter. Daughter of Winter is the story of twelve-year-old Addie who, left without family by tragic circumstances, flees to the woods to avoid a life of servitude. Taken in by an old Wampanoag woman, Addie must reconcile her past while planning for a future she never imagined. Set in Essex, Massachusetts in 1849 Daughter of Winter is adventurous historical fiction at its best.
