ALTON — Author Barbara Murray and illustrator Marissa Corbin will take part in a Book Chat in the Agnes Thompson Meeting Room at the Gilman Library on ,Tuesday, June 11 at 7 p.m.
Signed copies of their book will be available for purchase on the evening of the discussion. Admission is free. All are welcome refreshments will be served.
The book, The Seasons of Life, is about a teenage girl who goes into the woods searching for an answer to the meaning of life. She comes out with an answer that may surprise you.
This book is a rare breed, mixing an appreciation of the natural world with a recognition of the divine. As the girl moves through nature's seasons, she comes to realize that the beauty that surrounds her is God's work. This book works as a children's picture book and also as a keepsake gift book.
Murray's poem is wonderfully and colorfully illustrated by Marissa Corbin.
