Book Signing at the Purple Elephant

Located in Marietta, Georgia, Purple Elephant Affairs and Art Studio is the perfect place for artists of all ages to express their creative freedom. And on Saturday morning, March 3, from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, PEA Studio (located in the White Hawk Business Park, 1465 Canton Rd, Suite 100, Marietta, Georgia – inside Champion Kids) will host a very special story time and art event with local, bestselling children’s book author, Kelly Young-Silverman. Kelly will be on hand to meet families and share story-time from her bestselling illustrated children’s books, Man in the Moon and Where’s Wilson?

Each child will receive a copy of a book, and they can have it signed and take a picture with the author. The children will then re-create what they learned, heard, and saw in the form of art. This is great opportunity for your child to not only support a local author but to also experience a book signing event to encourage them to read, write, and illustrate using their imaginations.

Tickets for the event are still available. For additional information or to purchase tickets visit Purple Elephant Affairs, or call 404-673-4468.

The delightful, whimsical children’s picture book, Where’s Wilson? written by Kelly Young-Silverman and beautifully illustrated by erin the great) originally released as an ebook on October 20, 2015, exclusively on Amazon Kindle, and within a week had already impacted three of the online retailer’s Hot 100 sales charts, climbing to #25 on the Kindle Store’s Children’s Books, Imagination & Play chart; #26 on the Kindle Store’s Children’s Books, Bedtime & Dreaming chart; and at #46 on the Amazon Books, Children’s Books, Sleep category.

Where’s Wilson? is a fanciful illustrated story about Wilson, an important member of the Sweet Dream Team, who wanders away from the team. With bedtime rapidly approaching, the whole community bands together to find Wilson. After all, how can anyone manage to fall asleep if there aren’t enough sheep to count?

This captivating rhyming picture book features frolicsome watercolor illustrations that vividly bring the story to life. Children will love the sing-song verses and discovering new objects and characters in the multi-layered pictures.

Where’s Wilson? is the second in a series of Evie & Knox night time story books, following on the heels of 2014’s Man in the Moon, a sweet rhyming tale that follows a little girl on a magical journey as she learns that any acquaintance, even the man in the moon, can easily become a friend. “No matter how small you may feel (especially compared to the great big moon) you are special to someone,” says author Kelly Young-Silverman.

This rhyming picture book, written in just 267 words, is illustrated with soft, watercolor original paintings by erin the great. Erin’s illustrations vividly bring the story to life, allowing children the delight of discovering new objects and characters in the multi-layered pictures.

Both books are available in hardcover, trade paperback and ebook formats from WordCrafts Press.

“St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital is the choice for a number of our authors, and it is an organization we are thrilled to support,” Parker continues. “Many of us have experienced St. Jude’s first-hand, either through the care they provided to our own family members or to the children of dear friends. I can’t think of a better organization to support.”
