Grab a latte and some lunch and join me for a discussion about disability representation in children's literature and the WHY behind Why Me, Mama? followed by a reading and author signing.
Join me at the Brewster Bookstore on Saturday Jan 28th at 10:30AM Join us for a winter story-time and book signing with local author and educator Katherine Lockwood. Lockwood's recently released Why Me, Mama? was inspired by her daughter Rose, who was diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome. After an unsuccessful search for a book in which her daughter would recognize herself, she created one. Why Me, Mama? is an adorable children's picture book that demonstrates how disabilities are a normal part of life, whether they are visible or not.
Educator and parent herself, Lockwood understands and engages easily with children. Her expertise and compassion is readily apparent, and we are delighted to host her for a winter story-time. There will be a Q&A about the WHY behind Why Me, Mama? following story-time plus reading-related goody bags for all kids in attendance.
We urge you to sign up in advance as space is limited. Book preorders with registration will receive a special Why Me, Mama? art copy print: https://forms.gle/g6QRbsWpka2vrkzZ8
