Summer: A Solstice Story Reading and Story Walk

August 1 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Summer: A Solstice Story Reading and Story Walk with Author Kelsey Gross

Celebrate the wonder of summer and storytelling with Kelsey Gross, author of Summer: A Solstice Story. The long summer days are here, and in the peace and stillness of the morning, the forest seems quiet and asleep. But there is always life everywhere if you know where—and when—to look. Solstice is here! On the longest day of the year, friends Squirrel, Raccoon, Bear, Sparrow, Rabbit, Woodpecker, and Deer gather to share the gifts of new light and life that summer brings.

From 4-4:30pm, we will gather, mingle, and play. An Environmental Educator will lead a learning activity. At 4:45, Kelsey will read Summer. After the reading, there will be an opportunity to purchase books and have them signed. A self-guided story walk ends this program along a stroller accessible, prairie and edge habitat trail to soak in the wonder of summer! Join for all or part of this program.

About Kelsey Gross

I started writing poems and stories in first grade and dreamed of becoming an author. Many years and career paths later, I’m delighted to return to my original plan!

Picture books are powerful. The combination of illustrations and words create emotional experiences that help kids dream big, connect with their caregivers, wrestle with difficult questions, and learn to care for one another and our world. I’m honored to be part of these vitally important moments in children’s lives. One of my favorite things is talking with young readers. They continually inspire me to stay curious, laugh often, and see the world in new ways.
