Kids Author Erna Michalow launches Whose Trees Are These? this Saturday at 2pm

Wednesday, Jan 23, 2013 at 12:31pm

Author Erna Michalow will be launching Whose Trees Are These? (Peanut Butter Press) this Saturday January 26 at 2:00 pm in McNally Robinson's Atrium event space.

Have you ever wondered about the role of trees in nature and their relationship to the rest of the environment? The author weaves the story's other main characters - the sun, rocks, earth, water, air, fire, animals and people - into scenic treed landscapes and brings them all to life through the use of lyrical prose. Each character in turn claims ownership of the trees, but the trees have the final say. Scientific details in both the text and illustrations depict the natural beauty of our world.

Erna Michalow is a graduate of the University of Manitoba and taught elementary school for many years. She lives in Winnipeg where she is an active participant in several art clubs. Her inspiration for this book arose from a club challenge requiring members to create their own short book.

Children's author David Goldenstein at McNally Robinson this Saturday

Tuesday, Jan 08, 2013 at 3:10pm

Join author David Goldenstein on Saturday January 12 at 2:00 pm for a reading & signing of his first book for children, Why Are You Crying? (We Communications).

David M. Goldenstein is a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He is happily married to his soul mate with two wonderful boys who were the inspirations for David's first book Why are You Crying?. David is the owner/operator of dmg commercial credit consulting - a business he started 7 years ago - but his passion is his family and story-telling.

A few years ago Robert and Michael were faced with the passing of their much beloved Aunt. Their heartbreak prompted their Dad to console them with a story about Guardian Angels who watch over their loved ones. "She will always be in our hearts so she won't really be gone, right Dad?" This is an actual quote from Robert when he tried to stop his brother's tears. As Aunt Gloria becomes a Guardian Angel, the boys learn life and love can continue after death.
