Lindsay Mattick, author of «Finding Winnie,» will headline this year’s two-day Festival! Finding Winnie is the New York Times bestseller and Caldecott Medal winning true story of Harry Colebourn, a Canadian soldier heading overseas in World War I, who followed his heart and rescued a baby bear, naming her Winnie—the bear that became Winnie-the-Pooh. Lindsay is Harry Colebourn’s real-life great-granddaughter.
The festival also features storytelling performances, hands-on literacy activities, a Scholastic book fair and more! Plus literacy and arts organizations will be on hand to provide information about early childhood literacy programs offered in the region.
