Tractor Mac Author Coming to Norfield Grange

By Erin Lynch, Daily Weston (2/10/12)

  FEBRUARY 11, 2012 --

Weston parents can take their kids to meet Billy Steers, author of the popular children’s book series “Tractor Mac,” at the Norfield Grange’s Winter Farmer’s Market on Feb. 18.

A Connecticut native, Steers has written nine books in the series and has sold more than 150,000 copies. The books were inspired by bedtime stories about a toy tractor that Steers created for his sons.

Some of the books in the series include “Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm,” “Tractor Mac Learns to Fly,” “Tractor Mac Saves Christmas,” “Tractor Mac Farmer’s Market” and his latest creation, “Tractor Mac Tune Up.”

Steers will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. While there, Westonites can also check out fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, maple syrup, dairy products, soaps and meats from local Connecticut vendors.

The market is open every Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Norfield Grange, 12 Good Hill Road.
