Check out these upcoming events at Gibson’s Bookstore:
q April 26, 5:30 p.m.: Mary Azarian and Willem Lange, A Dream of Dragons. Long ago the ancient Norsemen perfected their swift-sailing, dragonheaded longships. They left rugged fiords in search of open land, trade, treasure,or fame. They landed in North America over four hundred years before Columbus. Their exploits are recounted in the ancient Norse sagas. A Dream of Dragons is a modern saga written with all the power of a true story retold in the ageless rhythms of blank verse and beautifully illustrated.
April 28, 7 p.m.: Jim Arnosky, Thunder Birds: Natures Flying Predators. Acclaimed naturalist and illustrator Jim Arnosky helps birds and imaginations take glorious flight in this breathtaking nonfiction picture book with six giant gatefolds. Arnosky will draw out kids' inner explorer as he explains why there are no feathers on a vulture's head, which bird is the deep-diving champ, what makes an owls's wings perfectly silent in flight, and much more. Readers can use this gorgeously illustrated book to bring the wilderness right into their rooms-or as a guide on their next expedition.
Watch out - he'll be coming with a LIVE BIRD!
