Ruth Spiro: Book Release Party--Made by Maxine!

Join us as we celebrate the release of a new book by beloved area author Ruth Spiro! Ruth has been a friend and patron of The Book Stall for years and we are delighted to host her for a special Maxine‚Äôs Maker Challenge in conjunction with the publication of her new picture book, Made by Maxine!  Joining Ruth for this event will be illustrator Holly Hatam, whose artwork graces Made by Maxine!  For this special book release party, cake will be served!

Maxine is an inspiring young maker who knows that with enough effort and imagination (and mistakes), it's possible to invent anything. She loves making new things from old things. She loves tinkering until she has solved a problem. She also loves her pet goldfish, Milton. So when it's time for her school's pet parade, she's determined to create something that will allow Milton to march with the other animals. Finally, after trying, trying, and trying again, she discovers just the right combination of recycled odds and ends to create a fun, functional, and absolutely fabulous solution to her predicament.

Ruth Spiro is the author of the popular Baby Loves Science series. She lives with her family in Chicago.

Holly Hatam is an illustrator and graphic designer whose work includes the #1 New York Times bestseller Dear Girl by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. She lives with her family in Toronto, Ontario.
