Author Visit with Becky Gehrisch
The Fine Print Bookstore welcomes Ohio author-illustrator Becky Gehrisch at 7 p.m. Monday, July 18 and 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 19 to read her debut picture book, Escape to Play, alongside her puppet friend, Norman the Mouse.
Gehrisch grew up drawing dogs and farm scenes as a child. Now she lives in a rural town in Ohio where she is constantly inspired by the beautiful countryside and wildlife outside her window.
Her latest book, Escape to Play, is a story about three mischievous dogs who slip out just before dawn to explore the farm. Using playful poetry and whimsical illustrations, this book is a reminder to all to have fun while exploring the world around you. As you read the story, keep an eye out for the special paintings hanging on the farmhouse walls.
Gehrisch has been visiting Lakeside for years and is excited to share her book with the community. All are invited to attend story time to meet Gehrisch, purchase a signed copy of her book, and have your picture taken with Norman the Mouse.
