You’ll have a chance to meet and get a book signed by a Wisconsin illustrator in Sister Bay on Sunday. Renée Graef has a new book out called “Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes”. It’s about a fictional dog named Sport who lived from 1914 through 1926 exploring lighthouses and boats on Lake Michigan. It documents real-life events that happened during that time period. Graef says it’s not just an illustration book but has a story as well.
This is the first children’s book published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. Graef is a lifelong Wisconsinite. She has illustrated other books about Wisconsin. Graef will be at Peninsula Bookman in Sister Bay on Sunday from 1 to 2 PM.
