Children’s book illustrator to appear at Rice Creek Story Hour

OSWEGO — The Nov. 15 edition of Story Hour at SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station will feature the children’s book “A Coming of Winter in the Adirondacks” by Brian J. Heinz with illustrations by Maggie Henry of Oswego.

Henry will appear at the free public program, which will begin at 11 a.m. at the station on Thompson Road in the town of Oswego.

“We are pleased to have this talented local artist join us for this very special session of Story Hour,” said Dr. Diann Jackson, assistant director of Rice Creek Field Station.

SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station offers Story Hour in support of the Read Aloud 15 Minutes partnership with SUNY campuses.

Read Aloud 15 Minutes is a national non-profit organization that works with schools and communities to increase the time parents spend reading to children.

SUNY’s partnership with Read Aloud is an example of how higher education can help to build a seamless education pipeline for New York in which every child gets the support they need in and out of school.

Story Hour is a series of free programs at Rice Creek Field Station. They are designed for elementary-aged children, though all are welcome. An adult must accompany children.

Since program size is limited, the field station is not able to accommodate groups.
