Kent County Public Library will be celebrating Children’s Book Week April 30th – May 6th. On Saturday April 30th children’s author, Claudia Friddell talks about writing her beautiful book, Goliath, illustrated by Troy Howell. In 1904 the city of Baltimore was almost destroyed by a fire that raged out of control for three days. Goliath, Hero of the Great Baltimore Fire is the true story about Goliath, the brave fire horse.
Educator Claudia Friddell says of her work researching Goliath, “It was a privilege to meet and interview firefighters and fire historians about the Baltimore Fire of 1904.” Goliath is her first children’s book. Claudia lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
The program will begin at 1:00 P.M. Refreshments will be served.
