If You Spent a Day with Thoreau

Wendell Minor will sign copies of his new book, If You Spent a Day with Thoreau at Walden Pond on Saturday, October 27th at 2 p.m.

In this lovely picture book, Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor imagine a special day spent with the celebrated writer and naturalist "through the eyes of a child." Together Thoreau and the young boy watch small but significant wonders such as swimming fish, fighting ants, and clouds in the sky. It is a day full of splendor and appreciation of the outdoor world.

Last Train

Gordon Titcomb and Wendell Minor will sign copies of their book, The Last Train on Saturday, October 27th at 2 p.m.

"Titcomb's 2005 song, this stunning book both celebrates and eulogizes the golden era of railway travel. Minor's luminous, occasionally almost photographic, paintings portray the adult narrator as a boy, surrounded by a ghostly haze as he walks along the tracks....There's little doubt that railroad aficionados will pore over the crisply rendered railroad memorabilia." --Starred, "Publishers Weekly"

"The Last Train" is going to please every last train lover out there..." --Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library

"A treasure for train enthusiasts." "--Kirkus Reviews"
