Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Claudia McGehee, along with special guest Mike Osterholm, will be at Dragonfly Books on Saturday, June 3 at 10:30 a.m. for a reading and signing of their new book, Creekfinding: A True Story.
In the words of award-winning author Jacqueline Briggs Martin and the enchanting illustrations of Claudia McGehee, this is the heartwarming tale of an ecosystem restored in the Driftless Area of northeast Iowa. The story will charm and inform young readers who are drawn to a good mystery, the wonders of nature—and, of course, big earth-moving machines.
"Chronicling the true story of one man’s quest to revive a stream rumored to have run through the prairies of Iowa, Jacqueline Briggs Martin relates the trials and triumphs in Creekfinding, a return to nature that proves that ‘a creek isn’t just water.’" —Foreword Reviews
"A heartening picture book that celebrates the thoughtful restoration of a prairie." —Booklist
