Janet (Bargmann) Thompsen, who grew up in Davenport and worked in the Davenport Children’s Library, has co-authored a children’s book. It tells the true story of a beloved cat named Linc, that served as the mascot of Lincoln Elementary School in Waterloo, Iowa for seven years. Thompsen and Lori Gross-Maynard wrote the story about the orphaned kitten who was adopted by Lincoln’s staff and impacted the lives of hundreds of students from 1994 to 2001. Doris Webber, a retired para-educator from the school, illustrated the book bringing Linc’s story to life. This tribute to the school’s feline friend will delight children and adults, and keep fond memories alive for cat lovers everywhere.
A book signing will be held May 5 from 12:00-3:00 at the Moline Book Rack 3937 41st Ave. Dr., Moline. Copies of the book are also available at the Bettendorf Book Rack Store.
