'William's Winter Nap' StoryWalk (All Ages)

Join us this February for our newest StoryWalk, “William's Winter Nap” by Linda Ashman! Drop by anytime (weather permitting) between Tuesday, February 21st and Saturday, February 25th to enjoy this outdoor, self-paced storytime! 

Just when William is ready to fall asleep in his cozy cabin, there is a tap on his window. A chilly chipmunk asks to stay, and Will scooches over in bed. "There's room for two--I'm sure we'll fit." The chipmunk is just the first in a parade of mammals, each bigger than the last, until the bed is full. Then a note is slipped beneath the door: "Do you have room for just one more?" William tugs the door to see who's there . . . only to find a great big BEAR! Is there enough space to spare? Will the other animals be willing to share?

What is a StoryWalk®? A StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Jane Healey Author Talk
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Bestselling Massachusetts historical fiction author Jane Healey returns to the Hanson Public Library for a presentation on her brand new book, Goodnight from Paris!  

About The Book: In Nazi-occupied France, an American film star takes on the most dangerous role of her life in a gripping novel about loyalty and resistance, inspired by a true story. In 1939 Paris, Hollywood actress Drue Leyton, married to Frenchman Jacques Tartière, lives as an expatriate in love. But when her husband is dispatched to Brittany to work as a liaison for the British military, Drue finds herself alone with her housekeeper, adrift and heartsick in her adopted city. With her career and fame forty-five hundred miles away, Drue accepts an opportunity that will change her life forever.  Befriended by seasoned wartime journalist Dorothy Thompson and urged on by political operative Jean Fraysse, Drue broadcasts radio programs to the United States. Her duty: shake America from its apathy and, as Nazis encroach and France is occupied, push for resistance and help from the US. As Drue and Jean fall under suspicion, Hitler sends his own message: when Drue’s adopted country is conquered, she will be executed. In a Paris that is no longer safe, Drue’s political passion is ignited. She’s prepared to risk anything to fight the enemy no matter how dangerous it gets—for her, for everyone she loves, and for everything she’s fighting for.

About the Author: Jane Healey is the author of The Saturday Evening Girls Club, The Secret Stealers, and The Beantown Girls, a Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Northeastern University, Jane shares a home north of Boston with her husband, two daughters, two cats, and a dog. When she’s not writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, running, cooking, and going to the beach. For more information on the author and upcoming events, or to schedule a virtual book club visit, please visit her website at janehealey.com.

This program is funded in part by State Aid to Public Libraries.
