AUTHORS OUT LOUD

dianemuldrow
Diane Muldrow is the author of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book, a humor-filled take on the wisdom found in the golden foil-spine treasures we remember from childhood. Muldrow's new companion book is Everything I Need to Know about Christmas I Learned from a Little Golden Book: the Poky Little Puppy, Gingerbread Man, and other classic Golden Books characters illustrate this wise and witty guide to the holidays. Both volumes are delightfully retro yet utterly of the moment. Books available for purchase and signing, courtesy of Lake Forest Book Store.
