Local author Susan Amiral Waby has announced that she will release her second book, "Downtown Ducks," which she both wrote and illustrated.
The book continues to feature the stars of Waby's first book four years ago, "Delighted Ducks of Hoopes Park." The park's ducklings explore downtown Auburn and its historic and popular sites.
Where some hear quacks, Sue Waby hears laughs.
Waby plans to involve readers by placing bronze ducks throughout downtown Auburn, to be found by participants. The ducklings' names will reflect historic figures from Auburn, and Mama and Papa Duck will also be looking for their brood downtown.
Waby will release the book Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Finger Lakes Arts Council's Art in the Park event at Hoopes Park. Supplies will be limited, and Waby will be on hand to sign copies.
