Bentley rides with Seal Cove Auto Museum

Thanks to the Seal Cove Auto Museum, part of Gary Schmidt’s middle-grade novel “Pay Attention, Carter Jones” came to life for participants in the IRW Community Book Club!

Kids and adults in the book club had free admission to the museum and took a spin in a real, vintage Bentley, just like the one Mr. Bowles-Fitzpatrick drives in the book (except this one was dark blue, rather than “eggplant”). The car plays a significant part in the book, which touches on themes of family, friendship, courage and the game of cricket.

Special thanks to the Seal Cove Auto Museum and to the generous owner of the 1958 Bentley, who brought it down from Washington County for the occasion.
