Join local author Cheryl Minnema at Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul for a reading and celebration of her beautiful new picture book, Johnny's Pheasant! An encounter with a pheasant (which may or may not be sleeping) takes a surprising turn in this sweetly serious and funny story of a Native American boy and his grandma. Cheryl will share her new story, take questions, and tell us all about making the book. Afterward, you can have your books signed while enjoying celebratory cake!
All are welcome at this storytime and author signing event which will be best appreciated by kids and families ages 3 and up.
