Jean Trawick with Spooklin (Oct 28)
Akron author Jean Trawick will be at The Learned Owl Book Shop on Saturday, October 28th, with her children's book, "Spooklin". She wrote the book in 1956 while attending a Children's Literature class at Heidelberg College, using fabric and other materials to illustrate the story. Many years later, the book was published with the author's illustrations.
Once upon a time, Spooklin was born in the Kingdom of Boo. He wasn't like the others in the kingdom and went on a journey to find himself. Fly along with Spooklin as he exchanges the comforts and safety of home for a year of discovery and adventure. The book was written for children 4 to 8 years of age and contains original illustrations, page-turning action, and a happy ending.
Ms. Trawick is a mixed-media artist. She has spent much of her life in education and corporate training (while raising two children) until realizing her dream - expressing herself through art and writing.
