Linda Martin and Alice Feagan visited Tryon Elementary School recently to discuss their new book, “The Summer of the Rabbits.” They are both from Polk County and said they were happy to revisit their old school. Author Martin read the book to the school and explained how she came up with the concept for the book. She later entertained questions from students and showed them a picture of her dog, Cocoa, who is a main character in the book. Illustrator Feagan demonstrated how she came to illustrate the book as well as the process she uses. (photo submitted by Sue Heston)
