On March 5, author Timothy A. Weeks and illustrator Miss Lala took part in Lake Helen’s 17th Biennial Florida Authors Book Fair.
Weeks presented in the historic Hopkins Hall, the site of the original Lake Helen Public Library. He demonstrated how childhood fishing experiences influenced his stories and how the montage illustrations were created by combining photos and paintings. Weeks also presented at Volusia Pines Elementary on Friday, March 4, courtesy of the Lake Helen Friends of the Library, who sponsored the event.
Goldie’s Search for Silver was chosen by the Times-Picayune for its Christmas WISH list for kids gifts. It was the only children’s book selected by the New Orleans paper for its annual list and was accompanied by the following: “Hurricanes, redfish and Cajuns with cast nets populate this beautifully photographed, locally written book by Timothy A. Weeks.”
