Join Books Inc. in Palo Alto for Sunday Storytime with special guests Christy Hale and Cynthia Jenson-Elliot reading from their wonderful collaborative book, Antsy Ansel: Ansel Adams, a Life in Nature. (Ages 5+)

You may be familiar with Adams's iconic black-and-white nature photographs. But do you know about the artist who created these images?

As a child, Ansel Adams just couldn't sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere--he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced (today, he would have likely been diagnosed with ADHD). But in nature, Ansel felt right at home. He quickly fell in love with the gusting gales of the Golden Gate headlands, the quiet whisper of Lobos Creek, the icy white of Yosemite Valley, and countless other remarkable natural sights. From his early days in San Francisco to the height of his glory nationwide, this book chronicles a restless boy's path to becoming an iconic nature photographer
