Finding Winnie: The remarkable true story of Winnie-the-Pooh and one great granddaughter’s journey to discover it.
Lindsay Mattick is the great granddaughter of Captain Harry Colebourn – the Canadian veterinarian and soldier who purchased the small black bear cub that fatefully went on to inspire A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh. Lindsay will share the adventure she’s had exploring her family history as well as the challenges and rewards of bringing it to life in her award-winning picture book Finding Winnie and the charming middle grade novel Winnie's Great War.
