A Little Bit About the Red Hen
The Red Hen Bookshop is owned by me, Laura Gibbons. I have lived in the Hannibal area since moving here with my parents in the late 90s, with a few years in Columbia at Stephens College getting my first degree. I currently live a few miles outside Hannibal with my husband, two daughters (the little chicks), two dogs, two cats, two hedgehogs, and a gecko-it's a bit of a zoo sometimes. I was inspired by the folk tale of The Little Red Hen as told by Florence White Williams, and the determination of the Little Red Hen to do what she felt needed to be done against all odds.
