Arts and letters shine on Shelter Island: New books launched at events

Just in time for the holidays, some of the Island’s artists and writers have published new books that will make great gifts.

Reporter columnist Jenifer Maxson and cartoonist Peter Waldner have collaborated on a children’s book, “The Whyyyyner Kids.” On Saturday, Nov. 25, they signed copies of their book at a holiday tree-lighting event at the Ram’s Head Inn.
