The otter said what?!: Local authors to give presentation on audio project

May 31, 2022

Listen to wiseacre mockingbirds, blowhard toads, impish chipmunks, Cockney otters, obnoxious literary agents, conspiratorial weasels, badgers with a brogue, and sweet singing water rats tell their story in an audio/visual presentation sponsored by the Friends of the Dartmouth Libraries on Thursday, June 16, at 6:30 p.m.

Frederick and Amy Thurber will describe their long quest to find a voice for the characters in the audio version of their book, “In the Wake of the Willows.”  The book, a sequel to “The Wind in the Willows,” is set on Buzzards Bay, Cherry & Webb beach, Allens Pond, and in the Paquachuck Inn and features sailing adventures in wooden boats, scavenger hunts, beach parties, amusing characters, and a mysterious prophecy.

The Thurbers’ presentation will be held in the community room at Dartmouth North Branch Library, 211 Cross Road, Dartmouth.  For more information, email
