Nicholville, NY, Apr 05, 2012 — An artist with family roots in the Adirondacks has re-issued a book that pays tribute to her grandparents and the region. Leigh Chapman grew up on Long Island, but spent her childhood summers, and school vacations enjoying the outdoors near Nicholville. She recently returned to the North Country to teach art in Ogdensburg and Lisbon.
She told Todd Moe that riding horses, swimming and hikes through the woods were all part of her childhood that she re-created through stories and illustrations in her book.
She'll read from and sign copies of Over the River and Through the Woods on Saturday, April 14 at the Brewer Bookstore in Canton at 2 pm.
