Sights and Sounds: A ‘Miracle’ Released

board.jpgI was fortunate to be among those who gathered in River City Books’ downstairs meeting area earlier today for the official release party for Oma Finds a Miracle, the second book by author Patrick “Packy” Mader and illustrator Andrew Holmquist.

andrew.jpgMader, a Northfield resident and Holmquist, who grew up in Northfield, delivered a touching, informative and funny presentation of their new book and the family — Mader’s — on which the delightful tales are based. About 40 people listened on as the pair discussed the process used to create their stories and illustrations, and fielded questions from readers.

There was also a cornucopia of sugar as the Mader family brought berries, cookies and doughnuts — appropriate given story lines from the books — and RCB store manager Jon Lee provided juice and cookies.

Put it together and it was a terrific event. For those who didn’t make it, I snapped a few shots (click to enlarge) and captured audio, which you can listen to by clicking below or subscribing via iTunes.
