to hold book signing
It was reported a couple weeks ago that Joy Steiner, author of P is for Potato: An Idaho Alphabet, would be at the Prairie Community Library Reading Program to read her book.
She will be at the library Thursday, August 11, at 1 p.m. to read her book to the children and will also be doing a book signing.
P is for Potato is a part of Sleeping Bear Press’ best selling children’s pictorial series: Discover America State by State.
Stan and Joy Steiner’s clever poems and informative text celebrate the traditions, locations, natural treasures and famous sons and daughters of Idaho.
The Steiners wrote P is for Potato to introduce even the littlest learners to Idaho’s past and present, its history and culture. A husband and wife writing team with lots to share, Stan is a teacher and expert on children’s literature, while Joy is an award-winning storyteller. The couple live in Boise.
The book is illustrated with Jocelyn Slack’s watercolor images. Slack, her husband and their daughter Luna make their home in both Garden Valley, Idaho and Wilson, Wyoming.
P is for Potato offers a guided A-Z tour through the state’s history, geography and wildlife and includes such varied topics as the gold discovery near Pierce in 1860, huckleberries, Picabo Street’s gold medal winning skiing and the World Center for Birds of Prey.
All are welcome to attend the book reading and book signing.
