Story Time with Erin Boeme, Dec 17

At Range and River Books in Bishop on December 17, 10:30 AM:

Everyone has favorite Christmas stories, and fond memories of reading them or even better, snuggled in and being read to!  Erin Boeme, whose art studio is in our upstairs space, also has a shelf full of winter  favorites, and has agreed to read some at a special Saturday morning storytime on December 17, at 10:30.

Erin is a mother of two great young readers as well as an instructor at Wild Roots Forest School, an artist, and a story teller. She has entertained our young patrons at recent Halloween parties telling "fortunes" and also shared her students' beautiful artwork on the porch for the Chocolate Art Walk.    We are so pleased to have her share her magic!  

Story time is held in the Children's Area at 10:30.  Please bring a pillow to sit on if desired.
