Alumni Author Mines an Ancient Story

Children’s author and illustrator David Shannon (SGS Class of 1978) has combined Greek mythology and rhymes in his new book, “GOLD!” “A retelling of the classic tale of King Midas, the story follows Maximillian Midas, a young boy with love in his heart for one thing,” according to an article in the Spokesman-Review on Oct. 16 by Stephanie Hammett (SGS Class of 2014). “Gold statues, fountains, trinkets of all kinds and a castle to top it all off.”
