Special Book Release Event
Special Event: Before There Was Yonder
Join us on September 30th as we celebrate the release of Before There Was Yonder.
A book geared for middle school readers and beyond, Before There Was Yonder is a tale of a world in crisis and of a gentle bunny who takes it upon himself to venture far from the cozy world of Wonderland to learn more about what can be done to help heal the planet. The story illustrates the many ways in which we are all connected and that we are all in this together.
Written in kind, compassionate language and with humor, each creature The Grand Bunny meets is designed to, not only inform The Grand Bunny, but allows a child/teacher/educator to research and provide additional educational opportunities whether it be on Charles King, the youngest drummer boy, to diseases that affect bunnies, or the environmentalism of Aldo Leopold.
Katherine Weston’s elegant illustrations carry with them the story’s spirit of environmentalism, kindness, compassion and caring. There is a companion coloring book as well.
The story was originally inspired by the artwork of Katherine Weston’s sculptures. Karen Faris developed a story to go with the installation of the sculptures at Brockport’s A Different Path Gallery. The overwhelming response led Karen and Katherine to collaborate on this book.
About the creators: Karen Faris is a writer, poet, performer and visual artist who resides in Rochester, NY.
Katherine Weston is an artist and manager of A Different Path Gallery. She resides in Brockport, NY.
