Join us on Saturday, May 4, at 11 AM for a delightful story time with our fantastic local author, Leslie Barnard Booth, featuring her captivating book, One Day this Tree Will Fall.
Dive into the enchanting world where a tree's wounds and decay bring new life to the forest ecosystem, perfect for fans of Because of an Acorn and A Stone Sat Still.
When a tree falls, is its story over?
Ever wondered if a tree's story truly ends when it falls? From being gobbled up as a tiny seed to weathering wind, ice, and fire, this tree survives, grows old, and becomes a home for creatures large and small.
Even after standing tall for centuries, when the day comes for this tree to fall, is its story really over? Or does it continue to nurture the forest and its inhabitants for years to come? The sweeping story, complemented with additional information about the vital role trees play in a forest ecosystem, invites readers of all ages to celebrate the incredible life cycle and afterlife of trees.
But that's not all! Our event includes not just storytime, but also an interactive puppet theater, a kid-friendly tree discussion, a show-and-tell featuring Tree Treasures from Leslie's collection, and a book signing! Don't miss out—RSVP now and join us for an incredible event in the REC Room.
