Rainbow Hair Book Event
March 16 1 pm – 3 pm
Join us in celebrating March Reading month with this one day event. In the house we will have both the author and illustrator of Rainbow Hair!
Rainbow Hair tells the story of a brother and sister who bring a little bit of brightness to their grandmother, who has lost her hair. While the C word is never mentioned in the book we can deduce that Grandma is in treatment. A heavy subject made light and loving in this little book. Well worth reading for every child whether they know someone dealing with cancer or not.
Author Patricia Grimley : Born and raised in Saginaw, MI, attended Michigan State University, taught Social Studies and English at St. Charles Middle School, now retired, has a daughter and a son and 6 grandchildren. She is a breast cancer survivor.
Illustrator Carole Grimley: Long time Battle Creek resident and Art Center member. Grimley donates much of her time and talent in support of the Art Center and the community in which she calls home.
Open to all ages. The event begins with a reading of by the author and moves onto a hands on workshop where participants will create their own Rainbow Hair doll!
Cost $20 for Art Center members $25 for non members
Books will also be available for purchase.
