Picture Book: A Storytelling Series for Children Featuring Maine Authors & Illustrators—Chris Van Dusen: The Circus Ship

August 16, 2023 @ 10:30 am 11:30 am

Join author Chris Van Dusen for a reading of his wonderful book The Circus Ship.
Loosely based on a true historic event, this is the story of a circus ship which runs aground off the coast of Maine. The circus animals must find their way to the shore of a small island. At first the townspeople view them with suspicion, but it’s not long before locals and animals are sharing the island in harmony. 

On four consecutive Wednesdays, beginning August 2, the Farnsworth Art Museum, in partnership with Katie Drago and the Rockland Public Library, will host a youth storytelling series. The program will take place in the Farnsworth Library.

This program is free to the public.
The other programs in the series are:

August 2: Connie and Peter Roop’s Keep the Lights Burning Abbie

August 9: Fran Hodgkins’ In a Patch of Grass

August 23: Daniel Minter’s Blue
