Writer's Salon with Yvonne Pearson

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

Yvonne is the author of eleven nonfiction books for children and the recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant. She and her husband began taking their children to the BWCA when all five of them could fit in one canoe. It’s still one of her favorite places.

When Sadie thinks of the wilderness, (in “Sadie Braves the Wilderness”) she worries about bears and boulders and bellowing waterfalls. But a family adventure in the Boundary Waters, complete with camping, hiking, and canoeing, helps her appreciate the wonders of the “wild, wild north.”

Author Yvonne Pearson will be the guest reader during our children’s story hour and discuss her writing process with the audience.

Mom’s Gift by Phil Olson

In this comedy with a heart, Mom has been dead for 11 months and shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission. Like Clarence in It’s A Wonderful Life, she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. One by one the family’s secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.
