David Kirk Comes To Town

Monday August 18, 2014

I know this is last minute, but if you are anywhere near Camden, Maine tomorrow morning and you’re a fan of children’s picture books, you will not want to miss this opportunity. David Kirk, the master author/illustrator behind the classic Miss Spider books (as well as Nova’s Ark, Oh So Tiny Bunny and his latest, Oh So Brave Dragon) will be at The Owl & Turtle Bookshop (they’re awesome!) on Bayview Street in Camden from 10:00 to noon. I have been a huge fan of David’s work since the very beginning, when I used to read Miss Spider’s Tea Party, Miss Spider’s Wedding and Miss Spider’s New Car to my boys, and I can’t wait to meet him tomorrow morning. I believe this is David’s first ever event here and his only appearance in Maine this year, so I guarantee it will be worth the trip.
