Event date: 
Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 11:00am

Join Eugenie Doyle to celebrate the turn of the seasons with her new picture book, Sleep Tight Farm. We'll have a storytime and a Q&A on "What do farmers do in the winter?," plus Eugenie will bring along a couple of "show and tell" items from her farm.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  A captivating exploration of how a family gets a farm ready for the snow of winter, Sleep Tight Farm lyrically connects each growing season to the preparations at the very end of the farm year. This beautiful and informative book paints a fascinating picture of what winter means to the farm year and to the family that shares its seasons, from spring's new growth, summer's heat, and fall's bounty to winter's well-earned rest. All year long the farm has worked to shelter us, feed us, keep us warm, and now it's time to sleep.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Eugenie Doyle is the author of two novels for young adults and many short stories. She and her family operate The Last Resort Farm, an organic berry, vegetable, and hay farm. She lives in Vermont.

Sleep Tight Farm is the 2017 American Farm Bureau Book of the Year!
