We're delighted to welcome Frederick and Amy Thurber to the bookshop on Saturday, December 7 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM to sign copies of their wonderful book, In the Wake of the Willows.
South Dartmouth writer Frederick Thurber and his talented wife, Rhode Island School of Design grad Amy, have created a stunning sequel to Kenneth Grahame’s 1908 children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows — and they set it on the Westport River.
Set in Westport in the 1920s, the tale is about “the denizens of a very special river. For like their relatives on the other side of the ocean, this river had its own Rat, Mole, Badger, Otter, and Weasel clans,” according to the synopsis. “When a spooky nocturnal creature starts terrorizing the riverfront, Mr. Rat’s clever daughter sets to work solving the mystery and unmasking the culprit. But that is only the beginning of the intrigue...”
Perfect for ages 12 and up!
