Thursday, November 30 will be a bonus event in November, featuring Carla Ketner and Paula Wallace (author and Illustrator of “More than a Local Wonder”)
Carla Ketner is a former elementary school teacher and instructor of college-level children’s literature courses who now owns and manages Chapters Books & Gifts on the historic courthouse square in Ted Kooser’s home, small-town Seward, Nebraska. Ted Kooser: More than a Local Wonder is her debut publication, but she’s been writing for many years, practicing her craft and developing her skills, finding her voice as a writer.
Paula Wallace has written and illustrated her own books, including Choose Your Days (Cinco Puntos Press/Lee&Low)) and Mr. Reginald and the Bunnies (Pomegranate). Choose Your Days won the Nebraska Children’s Picture Book Award and represented Nebraska at the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. in 2018. Her book, Mr. Reginald and the Bunnies, was a finalist for the 2019 Children’s Picture Book Illustration Award from Foreword Reviews. Her most recent collaboration with author Carla Ketner was on a picturebook boyhood biography of national Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser.
