Children and adults alike are invited to visit the Randell Research Center Saturday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m., in the Classroom of the Calusa Heritage Trail, for a reading and slide presentation with Gerald Hausman and Ramon Shiloh of the remarkable new book "The Otter, The Spotted Frog & the Great Flood".
The children's book is based on a traditional story from the Creek Indians of northern Florida and Georgia, retold by award-winning author and storyteller Hausman and brought to life by the powerful images of Shiloh. This enthralling tale shares the story of Spotted Frog, who tells of a great flood while other animals, except Listener the Otter, ignore his warnings.
This universal tale reminds us to listen to the wisdom of nature and the environment.
This event is free for all. Copies of the book for signing by the author and artist may be purchased in the gift shop. A donation is requested to walk the Calusa Heritage Trail. All sales and donations support Randell Research Center operations.
The Calusa Heritage Trail is located at 13810 Waterfront Drive, Pineland. For additional information on the event, call 239-283-2062 or 239-283-2157.
