Local SW authors Margaret George and Lydia Adcock celebrate their new book with the Southwest Library and neighborhood kids!
Come meet local authors Margaret George and Lydia Adcock and hear them read their book The Quest of the Platypus. Free copies will be available to the first ten households in attendance. Kids can be authors too–you’re invited to learn about the joys of intergenerational writing and bringing our characters to life. We’ll have a chance to ask Margaret and Lydia questions and make our own platypus crafts. This event is geared towards children 12 and under and their caregivers.
From the publisher, “Penelope Platypus has moved away from Australia with her family to a place where no one ever heard of a platypus and everyone thinks she is weird. Despite her parents trying to assure her that her traits—a beaver-like tail, a duck-like bill, and an otter-shaped body—are unique and special, she does not want to be unique; she wants to be like the other animals at school. After being taunted by a trio of mean piglets who laugh at her bill, her tail, and her fur, she decides to run away and see if she can be accepted as an honorary duck, an honorary beaver, or an honorary otter in one of their tribes. But she doesn’t fit in there, either. Finally, a wise otter convinces her of what her family couldn’t—that being herself, the best platypus she can be, will make her at home anywhere. Joyfully, she returns home to her worried parents, celebrating her special traits.”
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Southwest Neighborhood Library
