ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford hosted a book signing for two local authors on Sunday.
“The Garden in a Jar” was written and illustrated by Sophia Riley and Savannah Riley Gunthrie, two sisters who grew up in Rockford and attended Rockford Christian Schools. It tells the story of a young girl on a quest for discovery, connection, and curiosity-driven exploration.
June, the book’s protagonist, goes to Anderson Japanese Gardens, 318 Spring Creek Rd., to complete a class assignment. These are the same gardens where the book signing is held.
The Riley sisters will hold a book signing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Books will be available for purchase at the outdoor admission tent and inside the gift shop. The signing will take place on the floating bridge in the garden.
