Saturday, Nov. 3, 11 a.m.—RUTLAND—On Saturday, Nov. 3 at 11 a.m., Phoenix Books Rutland will host a story time with Robert Broder and Jenn Kocsmiersky, featuring their new book, “Paul and His Ukulele.”
About the book: Not all who wander are lost; sometimes they’re just searching for a new song. Paul was given a present. “A guitar?” said Paul. “It’s a ukulele,” said his parents. Paul loved his ukulele and spent all his time crafting his own song. As he got older, Paul knew it was time to head out in search of something new. When his travels took him to one small town, the unexpected happened. But from unexpected circumstances can come new friendships and new experiences. And maybe that new song he’s been looking for.
Robert Broder loves picture books, cold weather, and warm chocolate chip cookies. He likes all dogs and only two cats. When he’s not outside hiking with his family, he’s inside playing his ukulele.
