Eagle Harbor Book Company will host a family event with Nikki McClure to celebrate her newest book “What Will These Hands Make?” at 6 p.m. Saturday.

This lyrical picture book follows a family through one day and muses in the possibilities that one day holds – from enjoying treats at the bakery, to admiring handmade goods from local artisan shops, to observing the new construction in town.

Illuminating themes of community, creativity, and collaboration, “What Will These Hands Make?” dares the reader to dream up everything they can be and all the ways they can leave their little corner of the world better than they found it.

McClure is a self-taught artist and the author-illustrator of many books for children.
