Doesn't this sound like fun?
Trudi's having an fossil fest July 10 at Skamania Lodge. She'll read from Mom, There's a Dinosaur in Beeson's Lake, talk about fossil formation (she wrote a nonfiction title on Fossils for Scholastic a few years ago), and show some of her favorite fossils - trilobites. Kids will get to make a trilobite bookmark and she'll have the usual assortment of games, prizes, food, and fun.
