            Lincoln Park Quotes from Maud Hart Lovelace

As we grew older we made more trips downtown, pausing to play by the fountain at 
Lincoln Park or rest under the big elm there. ~ Maud Hart Lovelace, 1952

Quotes from Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill by Maud Hart Lovelace

* Lincoln Park was a pie-shaped wedge of lawn with a giant elm tree and a fountain on it. Hill Street turned into Broad Street there. It was the end of the neighborhood. 

* Lincoln Park came into sight, cool and green under its elm, the waters of its fountain sparkling.
“Let’s stop and rest before we go home,” Betsy said.

* “We’ll go over to the park,” said Betsy, and you can wash up in the fountain.”
They ran across the street to Lincoln Park, and Tib washed her face and hands in the fountain.

THANK YOU authors, illustrators, publishers, literary organizations, sponsors, and volunteers for making the 2017 Deep Valley Book Festival and the Authors & Appetizers Gala a success! Thanks to all who attended these events and we hope to see you again next year

The Deep Valley Book Festival gets its name from the setting of the beloved children's books (Betsy-Tacy) written by Mankato-born author Maud Hart Lovelace. The Festival provides readers the chance to interact with their favorite authors and meet new ones. This FREE family event features authors and illustrators, book sales and signings, a full day of programs, panel discussions, readings, children's programs, and more. The Authors & Appetizers Gala is a fundraiser for the book festival to ensure this family-oriented literary event can be offered free-of-charge to the public.
