Bring the family and join us for a reading of the children’s book, Hucks Way Home, with author and illustrator, Kristina Rodanas. Participants will make their own Huck Ears headbands, then set off on their own adventure, following a portion of Huck’s route [weather permitting, River Street to Billings monument in River Street cemetery] Children wearing their Huck Ears will receive free admission to the Billings Farm & Museum.

This program is part of the Bookstock Literary Festival ( Reading Location: the Mansion Porch at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (located across from Billings Farm & Museum).

Kristina Rodanas is the author and illustrator of more than twenty-five picture books for children including Dragonfly’s Tale, Dance of the Sacred Circle, and Follow the Stars.  Her work has been described as “vibrating with color,” “lyrical,” and “dancing with life.”  Her latest book, Huck’s Way Home is based on the true adventure of a week-old American Milking Devon steer who escaped within minutes of his arrival at Billings Farm & Museum in Woodstock, VT.  Illustrated with stunning images of the Vermont landscape, Huck’s Way Home describes the incredible journey of the brave, little calf as he galloped through the streets and paths of Woodstock, searching for his way home.
