David Simpson

We stroll along the banks of Loch Raven reservoir – one of the three primary sources of drinking water to Baltimore City and Baltimore County, listening to wildlife and author and photographer David Simpson's story of creating a children's book inspired by this place. His book, called The Swan at Loch Raven, is designed for beginning readers.

The book is available at Greetings & Readings, The Ivy Bookshop, and Amazon. David will be reading from the book at a National Reading Month event at Loch Raven United Methodist Church on March 3rd.
