Picture Book Extravaganza!

Authors Sally J. Pla, Susie Ghahremani, Marcie Colleen, and illustrator Ken Min will represent a diverse selection of titles and craft, in conversation at Mysterious Galaxy's "Picturebookstravaganza ."

Though Sally’s books are marketed for children, she writes them for everyone. Her latest picture book is Benjie, the Bad Day, and Me, which follows Sammy and his autistic brother Benjie who are having a rough day. To cheer Sammy up, Benjie shares his box full of his treasures with his older brother.

Susie is a person of many talents: illustrator, artist, educator, entrepreneur, and designer. A follow up to her Stack the Cats, Balance the Birds teaches early math skills to toddlers by introducing concepts of relative sizes with bright and colorful illustrations of birds.

Before Marcie began writing children’s books, she had worked as a teacher, a nanny, and even an actress. Penguinaut! is about a penguin named Orville who lives in a zoo, surrounded by animals with exciting hobbies. For Orville, he decides to top them all by building a spaceship and flying to the moon.

Ken Min is the illustrator of numerous picture books such as Sally’s Benjie, the Bad Day, and Me, and Dr. Michael Genhart’s Love is Love. Love is Love is a powerful resource to discuss the concept of discrimination. Following two young friends who have families that consist of a mommy and a daddy, and a daddy and a daddy, this story shows that what makes a real family is love.

This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy. Event purchases through Mysterious Galaxy not only keeps our bookstore doors open, but also makes author signings possible.
