Keene Owl

Keene State College in New Hampshire has an excellent Children’s Literature Festival every year. The Festival mascot is an owl, so the college has been collecting illustrated owls (all done by children’s illustrators) for their permanent collection. In particular, they are trying to amass a parliament of 100 owls by the 100th anniversary of the college in 2008. Here’s mine:


Yep, that’s right- it’s the Great Horned Owl.
See you at the Festival!

    As a resident of Keene I’m fortunate to be able to visit the collection whenever I want. Its fun too see all the owls together and how different they all are.
