Are You Sitting Comfortably?

The award-winning children’s author and illustrator Charlotte Agell ’81 took time recently to share some of her work with the Bowdoin community in a virtual book reading via Zoom.

Agell is also a teacher and lives near the College’s campus in Brunswick. Since 1991, she’s published numerous works of young adult fiction, chapter books, and picture books, including Welcome Home or Someplace Like It and The Accidental Adventures of India McAllister.

Here she reads from three of her books, including her latest, Maybe Tomorrow. Described as a “heartwarming story about loss, healing, and how to be a friend during hard times,” Maybe Tomorrow was the winner of this year’s Maine Literary Award for best children’s book.
