A blues band, refreshments, crafts, tours, and more helped celebrate International Bog Day at beautiful Volo Bog on Sunday. Father/daughter team, Tom Maple and Kelly Polark, shared and signed their new children's nonfiction picture book, WORDS ON BIRDS, at the celebration.
Award-winning photographer, Tom Maple, is a former teacher and coach from Ingleside and his daughter, Kelly Polark, is an educator and the author of five children's books that include ROCKABET:CLASSIC EDITION and ROCK 'N' ROLL PRINCESSES WEAR BLACK.
Using Tom's vibrant photographs of fourteen birds all found in Lake County and Kelly's prose, they created WORDS ON BIRDS. WORDS ON BIRDS can also be purchased on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and select bookstores.
