Special Story Time
Join us on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12 for a special story time! Local author Karen Kassy will read from the book Seaman's Journal: On the Trail with Lewis and Clark, by Patricia Reeder Eubank. Kassy will bring her dog, Splash, who happens to be the perfect likeness of the book's hero, Seaman! The book tells the tale of Seaman, a newfoundland dog, who spends three years on an adventure of more than 8,000 miles to the Pacific Ocean and back. The book tells the story of Lewis & Clark's expedition from Seaman's viewpoint. Based on the true entries in Lewis's own journal describing his dog, Seaman. This story time will be great for young readers as well as elementary-school age children who are studying, have studied, or will study this important part of history.
