Ruth will be reading her newly released rhyming picture book, Spoon Song. She will tell how the story came into being and the journey to find its place in the children’s book world.
She will read the book aloud. She will take questions and or comments from the floor. She plans to demonstrate how to play spoons as an instrument. Audience will be invited to try their hands (no pun intended) at playing spoons. Both soft cover and hardback issues of Spoon Song will be available for sale. This might be a Christmas gift idea for those with children or grandchildren.
