Please join us for a fun story time with my friend and local artist/author Susan Straub-Martin. She will be reading one of her stories and sharing the buddies (stuffed animal friends) that go with the books. Here is some more information about Susan and her books:
Susan Straub-Martin is the passionate artist, storyteller and purveyor of hugs behind Strauberry Studios. Susan is a creative designer known for her sophisticated yet relaxed modern approach to Buddies (polar fleece toys) and children's books. With spirited colors, confident combinations of printed backgrounds, and simple lovable characters Susan’s fresh point of view is apparent in both her picture books and in the clothing she designs for her Buddies. This mix of bright patterns and simple characters makes her style inspiring for kids and is sophisticated enough for adults.
Brambleberry Hollow™ is a magical place in the North woods somewhere in North America, where penguins own the snow cone palace, where a brown bear sings opera, a polar bear dances, and a black bear paints. A place where an arctic fox runs the post office and a red fox can knit trees to her hearts content. A place where all find a home to build friendships and community.
