There will be a book signing afterwards. The event will also afford participants an opportunity to check out live fish in the nature center's Kansas stream aquarium, and to teach kids fishing basics and open the door to a lifetime of healthy outside activities. There will be lots of "fishy fun" geared toward age four and older, including snacks, games, and crafts.
