Explore Booksellers is delighted to have long-time Aspenite Greg Lewis talk about his book Chasing Wonder Sunday June 19 at 5:30 PM. Chasing Wonder is a beautiful tale about confronting the unknown, written in eloquent verse, rich in word play, that appeals to kids and adults alike. The little oyster, Wonder, is banished from his oyster bed for being different. On his reluctant journey of discovery, he encounters Esteemed Lobster, Coral Larry, Marlin Brand-Oh, and other wittily named characters―smart and foolish, good and evil, all of whom shape his journey and ultimately his, and the reader's, self-awareness. Suffused with humor and wisdom, with enticing illustrations, the story captivates readers quickly and entertains them throughout. Alive with the joys of wonderment, this book is easy to read, hard to put down, and insightfully profound.
Greg Lewis is an Emmy-award-winning journalist, opinion columnist, network TV commentator, poet, and author. For more than 25 years he traveled globally for NBC and CBS, reporting on world sport including seven Olympic games. Greg will be introduced by Kathy Klug, Ph. D. who during her 17 years at Aspen high counseled some 3000 graduates and says, “I’ve read Chasing Wonder several times. I think it’s the ideal book to give a graduate of high school or college. It’s the best book for that since Oh The Places You’ll Go, which Dr. Seuss published in 1990.”
