New York Times best selling author, and Williams County native, Randy Wayne White has generously donated 400 copies of "Fins: A Shark Incorporated Novel" to Williams County. The first book Randy has written geared for Young Readers follows Luke, Maribel, and Sabina who are given an important assignment by familiar character Doc Ford. They are to set out each day on their small fishing boat in hopes of tagging sharks for Doc’s research―and to stay away―far away―from any possible poachers in the area. Together they form Sharks, Inc. The trio certainly isn’t looking for trouble, but when they come face to face with danger, survival requires them to rely on each of their own unique gifts, and especially on one another.
300 copies of "Fins" have been distributed through each School District. WCPL will award the final 100 copies to Williams County 5th & 6th Graders who enter our "Fins" Fan Contest!
