MONDAY, June 17th at 7PM: The Conclusion of THE TWENTY ONE BALLOONS

We end our week-long intermission (only fifteen minutes in the book) as Professor William Waterman Sherman continues his saga of how he left San Francisco and sailed off over the Pacific Ocean in one balloon, and was subsequently found wrecked in the Atlantic with twenty.  From the comfort of a bed on stage at the Western American Explorer's Club, the Professor continues his tale, bringing it to an explosive conclusion - literally!

This delightful novel by William Pène du Bois, published in 1947 was awarded the Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literature in 1948.
