In Cecilia's Garden - a BIG Book

big book 1

In Cecilia's Garden, created by Julia Clifford, is now on display in the Skybridge.

From the Artist's statement: "Cecilia's Garden is a story about grief and hope.  It is in honor and tribute to all who serve our country, from the soldier who rises to the call to duty, to the family members who support that soldier, to the lone bicycler who exercises his freedom of speech with his bicycle and a single sign that says PEACE."

This fabulous BIG book will intrigue you and capture your imagination; be sure to stop by the library to flip through the pages and enjoy this magical journey.  In Cecilia's Garden will be on display in the Skybridge through mid-March.
