Flying Umbrellas & Red Boats
Inspired by her time at an oceanside artist’s colony in Massachusetts, Flying Umbrellas and Red Boats is Karen’s latest children’s book featuring poems and activities. It will be officially released April 10 for National Poetry Month at Northshire Bookstore in Vermont. The poems explore how far we can fly in our imagination and how we find comfort being at the shore. Debbi Wraga, the book’s designer, used many illustrations Karen drew herself in craypas while spending time on the shore, as well as other images and photographs. The poems are meant to be read out loud and enjoyed by the entire family. The poems have many meanings — some captured by the young, some by those who are older and some by both. > READ MORE
