October 28, 2017 ::: Offical Book Launch Party


I am so excited for the release of my newest picture book, "Where Are All the Minnesotans?", written by Karlyn Coleman and published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press. (Insert cheers here) .  It is a delightfully written story about Minnesotans and the winter season.

Join Karlyn and I for the official book launch party at the marvelous Red Balloon Bookstore in St. Paul. The event starts at 10:30am. Arrive early to snag a seat as these events fill up.  Karlyn will read the book and I'll talk about creating the artwork. I'll also be bringing some of the original artwork.  What is better than, books, refreshments and fun? See you there.
