Local pre-teen publisher/ Reading Sat Dec 4 at the Regulator
Continuing the local theme of late, I’ve just finished designing the first book from Durham based publisher Sleepy Hollow Books which is a new venture by Amy Spaulding.
Yuri’s Brush with Magic is the thirteenth book from acclaimed Raleigh author Maureen Wartski, and is a compelling story geared towards 9 to 13 year olds and which takes place on the Carolina coast.
Jason Strutz of Carrboro created the original artwork for the cover. I designed the cover and typeset the interior.
There will be a reception and author reading at The Regulator Bookshop this Saturday, December 4 at 3pm. See you there. (The book is a mere $9.95 and will likely be enjoyed by kids and adults alike)
