Scene @ The Floating Island Cruise

floating-island-cruise.jpg

When the folks at Starscape, the YA division of Tor/Forge, told us a few weeks back about a pleasure cruise on Lake Michigan in conjunction with the contest they’d been running to promote The Floating Island, a debut novel from Elizabeth Haydon, I wrote back that I wanted to see some pictures—and they were happy to oblige. Haydon (blue shirt, sunglasses) is joined by members of the crew from the Tall Ship Windy as she signs a book for Ashely Garrett (wearing the white barettes), one of the winners of a concurrent contest organized by Levy Home Entertainment for Chicago elementary school students. In the other shot, you can see many of the other winners in that contest gathered with Haydon and the Windy crew on the deck, and maybe 11-year-old Lydia Kathleen Crouse, who won Starscape’s contest—run in collaboration with Dwayne Johnson‘s The Rock Foundation—with an essay about snow crystals.
