Pequot Lakes Library to host author Oct. 28

Author/illustrator/singer will be present Oct. 28.


Be inspired by best-selling author, illustrator and musician Douglas Wood as he presents his program about early childhood struggles and the special person who gave him the gift of learning to read.

He’ll be here at the library at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28. This musical presentation is ideal for kids and families. It is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s art and cultural heritage.
