Prince’s ‘Loons’ at Personal Book Shop
Thomaston — Maine children’s book author Nancy Prince will read and sign copies of “Libby’s Loons” Sunday, Oct. 7 at 1 p.m. at the Personal Book Shop, 144 Main St./Route 1.
“Libby’s Loons,” a children’s picture book written by Prince and published by Back Channel Press, features vibrant watercolor illustration by artist Luanne Wrenn. Both author and illustrator live in Wilton.
Prince said she received her inspiration from paddling her kayak near her home on Wilson Lake. Libby's adventures with the loons mirror her own experiences. The author hopes that through Libby's eyes, young readers will learn about these remarkable waterfowl and discover the motivation to protect animals they love.
As an educator and conservationist Prince advocates for public awareness of loons’ vulnerability to interference from natural and human invasions of their habitat. She facilitates an annual educational program on loons and loon research for Wilton school children. The project is offered by BioDiversity Research Institute, a science-based nonprofit located in Gorham, and is sponsored by the Friends of Wilson Lake.
