Whale Child Reading with Chenoa and Keith Egawa



Join us in the Fjord Hall Alcove for a reading and talk for The Whale Child by authors Chenoa & Keith Egawa!

Written and illustrated by the brother/sister duo of Keith Egawa and Chenoa Egawa, The Whale Child sends young readers on an adventure with Shiny, a whale child turned into a boy by the ocean’s water spirit. Along with Alex, a young Coast Salish girl, the two travel the earth, confronting the realities of a planet threatened by an uncertain future. Inspired by Shiny’s hope, humor, and wisdom, Alex makes the promise to become a teacher for future generations. Meet these local authors at the Museum in this free event, perfect for the whole family!
