SAXTONS RIVER -- Henry Homeyer will read from his children’s book "Wobar and the Quest for the Magic Calumet" at Main Street Arts on Saturday at 4 p.m. Accompanying him for the reading and signing will be the book’s illustrator, Josh Yunger.

Best known for his weekly gardening column, Homeyer is a writer, storyteller and grandfather who taught third and fourth grade long ago.

"Wobar and the Quest for the Magic Calumet" is a tale he told one summer while running a playground program in Saxtons River when he was still in college. Currently residing in Cornish Flat, N.H., he is the author of gardening books, including "Gardening in the Northeast."

Yunger is a faculty member of the AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, N.H. He lives in South Stafford with his wife Erin and their young children, George and Casey. He is the author and illustrator of several children’s books.

There is no charge for the event, and books will be for sale.
