Bowwow Powwow with Brenda Child & Jonathan Thunder

Saturday, June 9th. 11am-1pm.
Birchbark Books & ARTrageous Adventures

Kids! Get ready for stories, crafts, refreshments, and fun at the book launch celebration of Bowwow Powwow! Author Brenda Child and Illustrator Jonathan Thunder will be sharing from the book at 11am and noon. Each reading will be followed by a book signing, cookies and lemonade, and a chance to make your own Jingle Dancer or Grass Dancer popsicle stick puppet. Bowwow Powwow tells the story of Windy Girl, who takes the revelry of the powwow one step further, into a dreamworld where the dancers and singers are dogs. This playful story by Brenda Child is accompanied by a companion retelling in Ojibwe by Gordon Jourdain and brought to life by Jonathan Thunder’s vibrant dreamscapes. The result is a powwow tale for the ages.
