Author of the Month Laura Eckroat!

My friend Laura Eckroat is the Author of the Month at Karen's Art & Framing, 108 East Main, downtown Ada. Her charming and whimsical children books – The Life of BudA Simpler Time, and Went Out For A DONUT - Came Home With A MUFFIN – are available in signed editions at Karen’s throughout the month. A reception is planned for later this year as soon as Laura's schedule permit.

I met Laura at the Chisholm Trail Book Festival in Duncan one year. She was a joy to be around. Positive, funny, sweet. We stayed in touch by email after the festival and then connected on Facebook. At that festival, she only had one book out, but now she has three, and her fourth book comes out this summer in June.  

Her book, The Life of Bud, won 2010 Best Children's Book at the North Texas Book Festival, and Went Out For A DONUT - Came Home With A MUFFIN was featured and reviewed in Fort Worth, Texas Magazine. An Amazon review says The Life of Bud is "...beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written."

These sweet little books are perfect to read to your children or grandchildren. Visit Laura’s website HERE. When you buy one of Laura’s books, you get a code where you can download an free audio version of the books. How cool is that!
