Children’s Author to Visit Local Library
Children’s author and illustrator, Marie Olofsdotter, will be visiting the Aitkin Public Library on Thursday, October 28 at 6:30. Olofsdotter will be reading from her new book, Sophie and the Heartmender, using puppets.
Following the story will be a Q & A session about illustrating children’s books. Afterwards you will get a chance to test your skills on your own craft project based on the book. All ages are encouraged to come out for this event.
Ms. Olofsdotter will also be an artist-in-residence at Aitkin Rippleside Elementary during the week of October 25 through October 30.
The artist-in-residence and program at the Aitkin Public Library are sponsored by COMPAS, the Aitkin Public Schools and East Central Regional Library. Both projects were funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
