Author Talk: John Hare and the Field Trip to the Moon

Artist John Hare will talk about his new picture book Field Trip to the Moon. Climb aboard the spaceship bus for a fantastic field trip adventure to the moon. Once they land, students debark and set out with their teacher to explore. One student takes a break to draw some pictures, falls asleep, and wakes up to discover that the rest of the class and the spaceship are gone. How the student passes the time waiting to be rescued makes for a funny and unexpected adventure that will enchant children all over the galaxy.

With rich atmospheric art, John Hare’s wordless picture book invites children to imagine themselves in the story—a story full of surprises including some friendly space creatures. Published in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the first moon walk, it is a perfect complement to discussions and lessons on the moon landing. The Raven Book Store will sell copies of Hare’s book and a signing will follow the talk.
