Saturday July 28. 1pm - Maggie Kemp- Sam, Fisherwoman: The Reel Story
Maggie Kemp has always had a love of nature. She came to New Hampshire in the 1990s to practice medicine. Today, Maggie lives on a pond in Lempster, New Hampshire, with her husband and their dogs: long-haired miniature dachshund, Russell, and Bassett hound, Phoebe. There she writes poetry and literature for children. A number of her poems can be found in journals, newspapers, and anthologies. She also kayaks and watches loons and other critters on their pond. Sam, Fisherwoman: The Reel Story is Maggie’s first book.
Sam is one spirited little girl convinced that she can do big things without anybody’s help, even her big brothers. So she sets out to prove it, showing she’s a real fisherwoman early one summer morning at her family’s lake cottage. Readers will thrill at each step of Sam’s mission. When things seem to go awry, families will cheer for Sam as she faces each new hurdle with a can-do attitude. But will this spunky little girl catch her fish? Children's Picture book $17.95
