Where Will You Go?: The North Fork in Book Illustrations by Alan Bull, Kara Hoblin, and Danielle Rodger

Floyd Memorial Library, Greenport, New York

Opening reception with the artists: Friday, March 31, 6-8pm

(Kids’ VIP sneak peek 5-6pm)

“X marks the spot!” So writes Kara Hoblin in her recently published book The East End A to Z (2022). The treasures mapped within are all found on the eastern end of Long Island, as are those in Adventures Through the North Fork (2014) by author and illustrator Danielle Rodger, and in Augustus and Me: An Oysterponds Adventure (2019), a story written by Janis Rose and illustrated by Alan Bull.

Floyd Memorial Library is delighted to announce that many of the original artworks created for these beloved local books will be on display from March 31 until May 28 in the library’s spring exhibition Where Will You Go? The North Fork in Book Illustrations by Alan Bull, Kara Hoblin, and Danielle Rodger.

The exhibition’s title was partly inspired by Dr Seuss’s book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Just as that work conveys life’s many possibilities (and challenges), the illustrations of Where Will You Go? reveal the magic of the North Fork. We hope they inspire viewers of all ages to seek out adventures close to home and everywhere they go.

Please join us for an opening reception with the artists on Friday, March 31 from 6-8pm. Artworks and signed books will be available for purchase. If you’re a kid, you’re welcome to the VIP “sneak peek” of the show from 5-6pm, when you’ll have the chance to meet the artists and hear stories from their books. Feel free to bring a parent or guardian with you to this special kids’ event.

Where Will You Go? The North Fork in Book Illustrations by Alan Bull, Kara Hoblin, and Danielle Rodger opens on March 31 and is on display until Sunday, May 28, 2023. Floyd Memorial Library will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
