By Sarah Keen
A summer reading series. A few selected faculty at Colgate University were asked what was on their summer reading list. For teacher Sarah Keen it was The Tale of Briar Bank by Susan Wittig Albert. I chose to integrate an image of a book in all the faculty pick illustration series.
Here is the brief on the book – Near Sawrey, the seat of Miss Potter’s country home, is abuzz — Mr. Wickstead has died under a tree limb. The villagers are certain that his death had to do with a treasure he dug up last spring. But why was he in the woods on a frigid night? And what of the claw marks on the limb? And what was that treasure? As per usual, the town’s animals know more than the Big Folk. And only Picklers, Wickstead’s fox terrier, knows exactly what happened.
