Book Talk with Nancy McCabe on "From Little Houses to Little Women"

A typical travel book takes readers along on a trip with the author, but a great travel book does much more than that, inviting readers along on a mental and spiritual journey as well. This distinction is what separates Nancy McCabe’s From Little Houses to Little Women from the typical and allows it to take its place not only as a great travel book but also as a memoir about the children’s books that have shaped all of our imaginations.  This Book Talk will delight anyone who has had a deep connection to such children's books, whether they are 10 or 100 years old, or somewhere in between!  For more information, see this brief introduction on YouTube.

Event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
