A New Family Series at the Toledo Zoo

October 3, 2019

TOLEDO, Ohio – Leonardo da Vinci once said: “Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears and never regrets.” Toledo Zoo and the University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum are proud to present a new learning opportunity with Authors, Animals and Art, a meet-the-creative series at the Zoo.

The first event of this series will feature Steven Savage, illustrator of “Polar Bear Morning” on Sunday, November 10 from 1-3 p.m. in The Great Hall of the ProMedica Museum of Natural History at the Toledo Zoo. The afternoon will begin with a short multimedia presentation from the illustrator, followed by Savage reading the book aloud and conclude with a book signing. Copies of “Polar Bear Morning” will be available for purchase at the event.

“Polar Bear Morning” is a children’s book created for ages 3-5, authored by Lauren Thompson and illustrated by Steven Savage. It tells the story of two polar bear cubs that venture from their dens to explore their Arctic habitat and form a new friendship. The 32-page book was released in January of 2013 as a follow-up to the award-winning “Polar Bear Night” and has garnered rave reviews.

Authors, Animals and Art is open to all ages and free with Zoo admission. Guests are encouraged to come early and explore the new Museum, including the Mazza Gallery on the second floor. No pre-registration is required.
