A good friend of Island Readers & Writers, Linda has activity participated in events and programs in support of kids reading and learning. Last summer she presented a book talk on her book Seaworthy, the sequel to her New York Times Bestseller The Hungry Ocean.
In the fall of 2010, Linda returned to sea as Captain of the Hannah Boden. With her encouragement, Island Readers & Writers invited island schools to participate in a special program using GPS tracking to share the experience of long-line fishing with Linda. Six schools participated providing students with a practical application of math and science principles as well as an exciting adventure. Data collection and mapping activities were complemented by watching Linda on The Discovery Channel program “Swords” and reading Linda’s various books.
On July 3 the Greenlaw’s will again support IRW at the Islesford Dock Restaurant. Their new book is the second collaboration by the mother-daughter cooking duo. Their first cookbook Recipes From a Small Island published in 2006 was a huge success. Much like their first book, The Maine Summers Cookbook brings together personal accountings of life in Maine and delicious food.
Hope to see you on Sunday, July 3.
