Children’s Author and Illustrator to Visit Baxter County Library Saturday,February 4th, 2012
Children’s book author and illustrator, Elaine Wilson, will share her books, artwork, and stories in a presentation for the whole family at the Donald W. Reynolds Library Saturday, February 4, 10:30am.
Wilson’s stories, Fisherman Jack’s Secret and Fisherman Jack Meets the River Creatures, were inspired by her father, who spent his summers as a local fishing guide along the White River and winters as a trapper to support their family of eight.
“You can stand on the bridge (at Calico Rock) and look upriver and see the actual rock where Fisherman Jack has a picnic,” said Wilson. Wilson grew up in Calico Rock and now resides in Melbourne, AR. Her books will be available at the Library for purchase and autographing during the event.
All children’s programs are provided at no charge as a service of the Baxter County Library through generous donations and scholarships. Children of all abilities are encouraged to participate.
