Romany Kramoris Gallery is pleased to host two authors’ appearances this Sunday, December 23:
From 1 to 2 PM, Joyce Brian will be signing copies of her children’s book, The Orange Family: A Children’s Story of Art & Love. Wonderfully illustrated by Joyce Brian, this is a book about friendship, love and art. Each of the characters has a passion for life and each other. The underlying theme is educational because it emphasizes the nature of mixing colors. It is a fun way to learn! Recommended for children of all ages. An excellent bedtime story or impetus for an art activity.
Then from 2:30 to 3:30 PM, Allan Zola Kronzek will be singing copies of his new book of tricks, Grandpa Magic; 116 tricks, stunts, and brainteasers that will engage the grandchildren and provide giggles, jaw-dropping awe, and wonderful memories. Guaranteed to make grandparenting even more fun, Grandpa Magic is sure to entertain—and crack up—the grandkids. From the old pull-a-quarter-from-behind-a-kid’s-ear trick and “removing your thumb” to card tricks, stunts for the dinner table, and verbal puzzles that surprise and delight, there’s something for everyone. Step-by-step illustrations make them easy to learn.
