Meet the Author - Daniel Middleton
Sunday, April 19
As part of our Earth Day Celebration, Daniel Middleton, author of the recently published Naomi "Redflower": Imagine with Me will be on hand to read from, and sign copies of, the colorful children's book. The book, set in Central New York, is focused on nature and the four fabulous seasons of our region, and it is seen through the imagination of a lovely little girl, who is based on the author's daughter. She interacts with insects and birds in a unique way and the story takes children on a colorful adventure set in surroundings that will be very familiar to CNY kids (and kids from neighboring regions).
