Do you know any kids that are interested in hunting and fishing? If so, they won’t want to miss
Kevin Lovegreen, author of Lucky Luke’s Hunting Adventures series, touring the Kitchigami
Regional Library System Tuesday, October 3 to Saturday, October 7.
In his award-winning series, young readers follow Lucky Luke on amazing hunting and fishing
adventures. Kids will feel the excitement of climbing a mountain in Colorado and seeing a bull
elk at the top, and having a northern pike jump out of the water with their lure stuck in its mouth.
He’ll be talking about how he writes stories and then test the audience’s knowledge with his
Famous Animal Call Challenge. As a world-class speaker, Lovegreen uses his unique outdoor
theme to inspire, teach and entertain kids.
KRLS would like to thank our area school partners for helping to bring this program to their
students! Author visits create a lasting impression. They build relationships between kids and
the written word, inspire them to pursue creative endeavors, and connect lessons learned in the
classroom with the wider world. They also create interest in books and reading in general! All
schools will be receiving a full collection of his picture and chapter books to get kids excited to
meet a real-life published author. His books are also available at any of our KRLS libraries by
accessing our library catalog at
Kevin Lovegreen will be visiting Wadena, Sebeka, Brainerd, Crosslake, Pequot Lakes, Pine
River, Walker, Blackduck, Bemidji, and Park Rapids during his tour. This program is FREE and
open to the public.
