Description

Join local artist and author Misha Maynerick Blaise for a kids story time with coloring activities. Misha is the author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed book, This Phenomenal Life: The Amazing Ways We are Connected with Our Universe (Lyons Press, 2017). Entertaining, colorful, and deceptively full of facts, This Phenomenal Life tells the story of the wondrous ways that humans are always completely at one with our surrounding world. Misha will share some of her favorite selections from over 140 pages of illustrated pop-science factoids, which can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Kids are invited to stick around and work on an assortment of activity sheets where they can illustrate their own science facts, as inspired by the book! Rainn Wilson (Dwight Shrute from The Office) exclaims: "I have a new favorite book in the universe and it’s called This Phenomenal Life. It explodes with the wonders of creation and the beauty of being alive."
