Make Way! A Robert McCloskey Storytime with local author Angela Burke Kunkel

Robert McCloskey Storytime

Robert McCloskey Storytime

Join us for a very special storytime!

Local author, Angela Burke Kunkel will be reading the classic Make Way for Ducklings and her own book, Make Way: The Story of Robert McCloskey, Nancy Schön, and Some Very Famous Ducklings.

It is a beautiful and fascinating picture book biography that follows the lives of Robert McCloskey, creator of Make Way for Ducklings, and sculptor Nancy Schön, whose famous bronze ducks grace Boston Public Garden.

There will be a duckling craft following the reading.

 Flying Pig Bookstore will have Angela’s books available for purchase and signing at the event!
