Teachers, school staff, and librarians are invited to our Educators' Reception beginning at 3:30 pm and featuring a presentation by author Erin Rounds at 4:15.
This is a great opportunity to learn about our special discount program for schools and libraries, discover new books for young readers, gather free materials supplied by our publisher partners, and enjoy homemade refreshments!
At 4:15 Erin Rounds will present her new book Charlotte's Bones which tells the story of the Vermont state fossil. How could a whale’s skeleton have been buried in Vermont, so far from the ocean? How was it discovered? Erin Rounds is a Hanover graduate and currently teaches 4th grade in Springfield, VT.
Author presentation open to all!
Free and open to all area school staff & local librarians. Registration is recommended so we know how many cookies to bake! Please let us know if you'll be attending by emailing email@example.com or calling (802) 649-1114.
Many thousands of years ago, when a sheet of ice up to a mile thick began to let go of the land, the Atlantic Ocean flooded great valleys that had been scooped out by glaciers, and the salty waves of an inland sea lapped the green hills of Vermont. Into this arm of the sea swam Charlotte. Her milky, smooth, muscled body sliced slowly through the water like scissors through silk.
