Location: Nature House


We are excited to host local author Emily Lonie, as she launches her first book: Corben and the Crow Commute. The chapter book tells an action packed coming-of-age adventure story about a young crow making his way in the big city, with a little help from the wildlife friends that he meets along the way. Join us at the Nature House on Lost Lagoon for a chance to meet both the author and the illustrator. The event will include readings of excerpts from the book, book signing opportunities, and the chance to needle felt your own little Corben!
