Local science writer and children's book author Kim Ridley will hold a workshop for kids ages 8+ where they will make their own booklets of nature observations at Blue Hill Public Library, 10:00-10:45am.
Kimberly Ridley is a science writer, essayist, and award-winning author of nonfiction books for children. Her picture books, the Secret Pool (Kirkus starred review and Lupine Award, Maine Library Association) and the Secret Bay, received Riverby Awards from the John Burroughs Association for "outstanding natural history books for young people." Kim's new middle grade book, Extreme Survivors: Animals That Time Forgot, will be published in November. A Maine native and avid naturalist, she lives in Brooklin with the painter Tom Curry and their elderly cat.
This event is free of charge and everyone 8+ is welcome.
