The Decemberists' Colin Meloy writing children's book

The Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy is paying tribute to late folk legend Pete Seeger by writing a children's book about him.

The singer/songwriter counts the beloved artist as one of his musical heroes, and now he's creating a picture book biography called The Golden Thread about Seeger.


The book will include illustrations by his artist wife Carson Ellis, and is slated for release next year (17).


Meloy and his wife previously collaborated on his debut children's book, Wildwood, in 2011. The project turned out to be a success and two more books in the series have since been released.
