Local author and illustrator Lisa Tremblay will read from her children’s book “How Coyote Created the Milky Way” at Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum. This is a free event offered during school vacation week for families to enjoy together.

Lisa’s paintings beautifully illustrate a classic tale of the trickster coyote.  In her own words,”How Coyote Created the Milky Way” is “a children’s book of a Native American folklore that I have re-told and illustrated in watercolor with accents of acrylic to give emphasis to the Coyotes character. It is a visually stimulating and mystical story of not only the creation of the Milky Way but how the Coyote came to be as well.”
