Eugenie Doyle | Sleep Tight Farm
Saturday, November 5, 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Eugenie Doyle will read her new picture book, Sleep Tight Farm, in a very special storytime!
A captivating exploration of how a family gets a farm ready for the snow of winter, Sleep Tight Farm lyrically connects each growing season to the preparations at the very end of the farm year. This beautiful and informative book paints a fascinating picture of what winter means to the farm year and to the family that shares its seasons, from spring’s new growth, summer’s heat, and fall’s bounty to winter’s well-earned rest. All year long the farm has worked to shelter us, feed us, keep us warm, and now it’s time to sleep.
Eugenie Doyle, author and farmer, has also written two novels for young adults and many short stories. She and her family operate The Last Resort Farm. Eugenie knows the value of a close connection to land, to food, and believes that if everyone knew this, they too would want to preserve it, and children are the chief fans and beneficiaries of the farming life.
Becca Stadtlander’s illustrations pair beautifully with Eugenie’s peaceful text. Becca is the illustrator of many children’s and young adult publications. She was born and raised in Covington, Kentucky.
