Radio Kansas Arts Calendar

Book Signing
Date: December 7, 2013, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Venue: The Bookshelf - 206 N Main, McPherson, KS
Sponsor: The Bookshelf

The Event:      Author and illustrator Michael Kline will be making a book-signing appearance at The Bookshelf in McPherson, KS, on Saturday, December 7th, from 10 a.m. to noon. In January of 2013 Kline visited with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes at Roosevelt Elementary in McPherson, gave a presentation of his work, and asked that the students assist him with his next project, Abra-Ca-Doodle: The Doodles of Sam Dibble (book 4, from Penguin Young Readers Group). Mr. Kline is the illustrator of the series and petitioned the kids to send him letters and artwork, replete with doodles of every kind. The classes responded en masse with hundreds of letters and drawings, which the artist sought inspiration from while he illustrated the book. He then dedicated the book to the children in those classes. An illustrative contributor to Kids Discover magazine for more than 20 years, Michael Kline also lists such companies as Grosset and Dunlap, Family Fun magazine, Readers Digest Books for Children, Storey Publishing, and Ideals Publishing among those who receive his hand-addressed (and illuminated) invoices. He is the author/illustrator of WordPlay CafĂ©, a phonetic romp for the knee-high generation. He crafts his childish imagery from his modest and nearly-paid-for home in Wichita, KS.
