Children will visit The Morrill Homestead’s brand new Fairy Village and have an opportunity to create a fairy house of their own. You’ll also have a chance to meet Tracy Kane and purchase signed copies of her books. Children are invited to create and wear their own costumes, inspired by fairies, fairy houses and the magic of nature. About Tracy Kane: Author, Illustrator and Educator Tracy Kane majored in illustration at Philadelphia College of Art. She also studied in London, England where she met her husband, Barry. After working as a commercial artist for NH Public Television, she now spends most of her time introducing communities to the joy of fairy house building.

I use the fairies as a vehicle to remind them that nature’s magic is all around us.” Advance registration required. Please sign up early as this event fills up quickly and space is limited.
