I had a wonderful time at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland on Friday where I read from my books, Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay and Olly’s Treasure. It was great to see kids having fun at the festival and learning about oysters and waterfowl on the Chesapeake Bay. Children also made stick puppets of Olly the Oyster to take home with them! A big thank you to Cathy Fawell for coordinating and making this event so special.
