ROCKLAND — Rockland Public Library will be welcoming local author Chris Van Dusen to the library, Monday, June 27, at 2 p.m. This year's Summer Reading theme is an Ocean of Possibilities. Chris Van Dusen will help kick off the summer with a read aloud of his story Down to the Sea with Mr. Magee and some of his other books. This will be followed by a drawing lesson on how to create his dog character, Dee.  

“Feel free to bring one of his books to have him sign,” said RPL, in a news release. “Come play, listen, and learn with us!”
