Hear stories of Eeyore’s house, the North Pole, and the game of Poohsticks. Aalto will discuss the beauty of Ashdown Forest – the real woods that inspired A. A. Milne’s Hundred Acre Wood – its flora and fauna, and the ongoing efforts to raise funds to continue protecting this national treasure.

Aalto is appearing in this region exclusively at Spotty Dog Books & Ale, 440 Warren Street, Hudson. A portion of book sales will benefit the Campaign for the New Hudson Area Library.

Listen to a recent interview and walk through the woods with the author as heard on NPR’s All Things Considered.
