Blue Bicycle Books, Charleston, SC

Story hour with Marjory Wentworth and Leslie Pratt-Thomas — Saturday, Feb. 21

Marjory Wentworth, S.C. poet laureate, and Leslie Pratt-Thomas, illustrator, will sign copies of their children’s book Shackles, Saturday, Feb. 21, 11 am to 1 pm. Join us on the carpet at 11:30 for a storytime reading with juice boxes, snacks and a raffle to win a free copy of the book!

Sullivan’s Island was where millions of slaves were quarantined after the middle passage. Shackles is a true story of Marjory’s sons digging up manacles in their backyard. It’s an uplifting and poignant vignette of growing up in a beach town where history is as permeating as the sea air and sounds.
