Author Event at George
Join us on Friday, August 8th at 4pm for a signing by author Susan Lendroth. Ms. Lendroth's new picture book Ocean Wide, Ocean Deep, sumptuously illustrated by Raul Allen, tells the story of a young girl on Cape Cod in the 19th century who spends a year pining for her father gone to China for trading. The lyrical rhyme of this quiet, haunting picture book evokes the lapping of the sea and the loneliness that comes of dreaming of a loved one far away. Ultimately, the girl and her father are reunited, showing that love between a parent and child is deep as the ocean. Copies are available for purchase now.
