GORHAM -- This Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., the White Mountain Cafe and Bookstore at 212 Main Street in Gorham will present one of the North Country's most prolific authors, Eric Pinder. Pinder recently released a major new children's book, "If All the Animals Came Inside", from the national children's book publisher, Little, Brown and Company.
At 2:30 p.m., kids of all ages are welcome at the cafe, as Pinder will read aloud from "If All the Animals Came Inside". Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, as bears march down the stairs, kangaroos bounce on the couch, and an octopus splashes in the bath! Boisterous and bold collage illustrations from the critically-acclaimed and beloved New York Times bestselling illustrator Marc Brown brings this rhyming adventure to life in a giggle inducing read-aloud.
Eric is known to many in the North Country and is a nationally-acclaimed writer. He first arrived as an employee of the Mount Washington Observatory. His time on the "Rock Pile," led to the popular book, "Life at the Top". From there, Eric went on to write "Cat in the Clouds", "Among the Cloud"s, and "Tying Down the Wind". Noted climber and producer David Breashears called Eric's book "North to Katahdin", "A descriptive, insightful book that makes us think about our place in nature."
Eric's full collection of works, much enjoyed by readers of the years, will be available for purchased and can be signed by the author. They make fabulous gifts for any reader interested in the hiking, weather and the outdoors.
The White Mountain Cafe and Bookstore is delighted to welcome Eric, and we look forward to readers of all ages joining us for this event. For more information, call the cafe and bookstore at 466-2511, or visit online at whitemountaincafe.com.
