“So Long, Big Duck” book has been in Mr. Holme’s mind for years, slowly taking form on handwritten spiral notebook pages that gathered in what his friend, editor, companion and caretaker Fiona Molloy Lepperd calls the “creative mounds, mountains of paper and notes and poems” scattered all around his place near Key West, where he moved with Kate Wyckoff-Holmes around 2011. She died there in 2016. Turning those pages into a sweet, enchanting yet soulful children’s book about two city kids’ summer visit to “Deep Harbor” (a dead ringer for Sag Harbor) was an effort led by Ms. Lepperd and Mr. Holme’s Sag Harbor friends Reynold Ruffins, the artist and retired commercial illustrator, and graphic designer Charles Grubb of C D Grubb Photo Graphics.
