What happens when a gnome disappears from your garden? Find out 4:30-6 p.m. Monday when author Joy Bashara and Superior resident and illustrator June Nyberg will give a program in the library’s classroom. They discuss their new children’s book Eilert the Gnome Loses Home.
The first of a four book series written for children from five- to ten-years-old, the book follows Eilert the Gnome on his journey to find home. During his journey he learns many truths, including that life is filled with changes you can handle, family are the people who care for you, and home is a place in your heart.
