Community Room Combined
Saturday, Feb 25, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

The Friends of Lakeview Library will hold their annual meeting on Saturday, February 25, 2023. The business meeting will begin at 1:00, followed by a family event featuring author Susan Apps-Bodilly at 2:00.

Local author Susan Apps-Bodilly will talk about her new book Seeds in Soil: Planting a Garden and Finding Your Roots, a gardening guide for kids and their grownups with projects, recipes, and more!  She will tell you how to take learning outdoors and empower young readers to plant their own gardens while digging deeper into related science and history lessons in this “soil to supper” book designed for kids and adults to use together. Packed with hands-on activities, fun projects, and fresh recipes, her colorful gardening guide provides opportunities for kids to observe, explore, and ask questions while engaging their natural curiosity about nature. Seeds in Soil includes all the details to start planting and growing, whether working with a whole yard, a community or school garden, or just a balcony.

Susan Apps-Bodilly is the author of One Room Schools and coauthor with Jerry Apps of Old Farm Country Cookbook. She has been an elementary and middle school educator in rural and urban school districts in Wisconsin and Ohio and currently teaches second grade.

All attendees will have a chance to win a free copy of Seeds in Soil.  Books will also be available for sale.
