Cookies with Cookie: Story Time with Lynda Graham-Barber

Event date: 
Saturday, November 4, 2017 - 3:00pm

Join Lynda Graham-Barber for a story time featuring her new book, Cookie's Fortune. Attendees will also be treated to a visit with Lynda's rescue dog, Biscuit, and delicious locally baked cookies!

ABOUT THE BOOK: Come along on a small dog’s journey from surviving in a vast city to finding her forever home. In simple, poetic language, with captivating art that portrays the challenges of a huge city, Cookie’s Fortune depicts a stray dog as she searches for food, shelter, and comfort. Compelling and age appropriate, this adorable stray’s quest will engage animal-loving children, their parents, teachers, and librarians with its message of hope and compassion. The story is based on the author’s own adoption of a dog she saved from a subway station. The final page is filled with information for parents and other adults who want to learn more about the subject.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Lynda Graham-Barber's abiding passions for writing and animals have intermingled for four decades, as children’s book editor, writing teacher, author of 13 books, and an animal rights advocate. The author, who holds a MFA in Writing for Children from Vermont College, lives in a small stone cottage, which she helped build, situated on 160 wooded acres in the Northeast Kingdom, Vermont, with her artist-husband, David, and their rescued dog, Biscuit.
