This past week we had local illustrator/author Karon Argue in our Learning Commons with her first book The Smooch (available through her website or at Bearberry Lane in High River, AB). Karon’s presentation of winsome illustrations and rhyming text were a true delight to the kids. Karon’s personal story poignantly models perseverance and the importance of community and team work, values wonderfully portrayed in The Smooch. Karon is now legally blind and uses assistive technology to continue to produce her vibrant illustrations. She has 5 more books in the works! Watch for them!
