This Saturday, December 19th, I’ll be doing the first public reading of Ellen and the Winter Wolves. Is this event for kids? Yes! What about adults? Absolutely! It will be at 7pm at Journey the Way – 147 S Hillside St, Wichita, Kansas 67211. I’ll read the book, complete with voices, and one Cooper Hanning will contribute sound effects. Why? Because it will add a lot. And it will make it more fun than it otherwise would be. And he’s very good at wolf howls. Cooper will also provide some introductory music – Christmas carols and perhaps an Ellen-inspired song! What??!! Yes, he just might do that.
There will also be hot chocolate, because everything is better with hot chocolate. And if you have questions about the book, I’ll be there to answer them. And if you want to buy a copy of the book, you can do that too. And I might just sign that book and personalize it as well, if you so desire, at no extra charge.
So why? Why carve out some time on a Saturday night right before Christmas to come and listen to me read? You’re busy, right? I get it. But here’s a chance for you to stop, to not run around like a decapitated chicken and to just sit, even for just a few moments, and listen. This is your chance to push back against the busyness, quiet your mind, and engage your imagination. I hope to see you there!
