Book Presentation at the OLL...

Tattos Barracuda Teeth & a Lady Who Talked To Worms

By the author, Tom Dunham

Wednesday, Apr. 9 at 1:00 pm

If we’re lucky, the discoveries of childhood stay with us forever—some can shape our lives, some help us later, when we ask the face in the mirror—How did I get here?  Ten-year-old Dan spends three days on a lake all but alone, a greenhorn from the moment he leaves a shadowy path for the blinding, sunlit waters of a lake. His story is a child’s story for us all--from 70 to younger, “For me, this is a book about the love and awe of a new and  immediate passion--that everyone (as a kid) has experienced. And your book does this in such an understated and quiet way--as it takes it's time with the boy's learning and mistakes and small triumphs.” --Matt Yurdana, author of “Public Gestures,” a book of poems.  “Tattoos” is an e-book, and can be purchased through all the major on-line book sellers.  More information,  plus an interview with Tom can be found at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/381996.
