Writer's Salon with Yvonne Pearson
Writer's Salon with Yvonne Pearson

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

Yvonne is the author of eleven nonfiction books for children and the recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant. She and her husband began taking their children to the BWCA when all five of them could fit in one canoe. It’s still one of her favorite places.

When Sadie thinks of the wilderness, (in “Sadie Braves the Wilderness”) she worries about bears and boulders and bellowing waterfalls. But a family adventure in the Boundary Waters, complete with camping, hiking, and canoeing, helps her appreciate the wonders of the “wild, wild north.”

Author Yvonne Pearson will be the guest reader during our children’s story hour and discuss her writing process with the audience.
