Lynell Garfield presents THE SECRET LIFE OF TREES! UHBF

September 19 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


Join us on September 19 as Weller’s welcomes Lynell Garfield for a reading and signing of THE SECRET LIFE OF STREAMS. Great for the whole family! Kids will love it!

The Secret Life of Streams is an uplifting children’s story of life in Small Creek as the daily adventures of stream insects and fish, as told by Loralei the Mayfly. Loralei asks young readers to meet her playmates in the bottom of Small Creek, with all of their strange lifestyles. By sharing her underwater adventures with readers, Loralei hopes to hatch out of the water welcomed by new above-water friends. The story transforms into a pictoral field guide that brings the cartooned characters together with real-life renderings of the insects, to engage and encourage young explorers. This story is the perfect tool for parents, teachers, or anyone interested in fostering connection to our resources, for a lifetime of thinking downstream and stewardship. This book was selected for Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, to share Nevada’s literature with students. After a critical review, The Secret Life of Streams was chosen to represent Nevada at the National Book Festival in Washington D.C. on August 30 2014!

Lynell lives in the high desert of northern Nevada, working as a Hydrologist in the Truckee River watershed. Lynell lives plunk in the middle of xeriscape and an urban garden with partner author Thomas Qualls and son August Paxton.

Drawing from background as a toxicologist, environmental scientist, stream ecologist and teacher, Lynell has spun a web blending story-telling and a scientific beginners field guide. Her passion for rivers and desire to share with others creatively led to her writing and producing THE SECRET LIFE OF STREAMS.

Part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.
