Message in a Bottle
Based on actual events, Lea Aschkenas brings us this heart warming tale that takes place in Cuba revolving around a little girl who has an insatiable love for maps and dreams of exploring different places. Meanwhile, in Northern California, an old man named Steve once had similar aspirations of sailing the world and making friends in foreign lands. The connection between these two strangers, established through a message in a bottle--which Arletis found on her 8th birthday--leads to an inspiring visit and a lasting friendship that broadens their horizons. She works as a public librarian and teaches with the California Poets in the Schools program. She has written book reviews and articles for Washington Post Book World, Los Angeles Review of Books, and Salon.
