Margi Preus, Nikki McClure, LILY LEADS THE WAY and OLD WOOD BOAT - Virtual Release Party!

Event date: 
Wednesday, May 18, 2022 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Usher in the summer with Red Balloon by celebrating the releases of Margi Preus's Lily Leads the Way and Nikki McClure's Old Wood Boat in a sailing picture book extravaganza!

In Lily Leads the Way, best-selling Minnesotan author of Heart of a Samurai Margi Preus shares the story of a little sailboat who has a big burst of determination when a fleet of tall ships needs assistance to get under the lift bridge. Author-illustrator Nikki McClure uses lyrical prose and intricate cut-paper illustrations to detail the journey of an old sailing boat made seaworthy again in her book, Old Wood Boat. Margi and Nikki will read from their books, chat about the creative process and, of course, leave time for questions from the audience!
