October 7, 2018
Join us on Sunday, October 7th from 12:00-2:00 for a reading with Pat Kittelson, author of Bixley Baines and the Little Sweaters.
The reading wil lbe followed by a milk and cookie reception.

Bixley Baines and the Little Sweaters is a story based on a true event that occurred in 2000 off the shore of Tasmania, Australia. An oil tanker leaked and covered little blue penguins residing there. Little sweaters were knit and used to keep the little penguins warm during their cleaning and recovery. With a fun story and the true science plus a knitting pattern, this is a book to inspire simple solutions to caring for the environment.

Author Statement

I believe that life creates a series of good stories. We share stories and we learn from them. We tell stories when we have no other words to express compassion, sorrow, love, and happiness. When I meet a person, I know that inside that person exist many, many, good stories - some to share and some to hold. I like to take stories of real people making a difference and re-tell them in a way that highlights scientific creativity.
