Launch of Rockland Public Library’s Summer Reading Program with Author Chris Van Dusen

ROCKLAND — The Rockland Public Library will welcome local author Chris Van Dusen to the library on Monday, June 27 at 2 p.m. The theme for this year’s summer reading is an ocean of possibilities. Chris Van Dusen will help kick off the summer with a read-aloud of his story To the Sea with Mr. Magee and some of his other books. This will be followed by a drawing lesson on how to create her dog character, Dee.

“Feel free to bring one of his books for him to sign,” RPL said in a statement. “Come play, listen and learn with us!”
