Lisa writes animal totem stories. It is a Native American tradition to find the energy of animals to teach a custom to people. Lisa will be here to talk and to sign books. She’ll be bringing wonderful dream catcher kits made from tandy leather.
Everyone is welcome. This is a good program for kids as well as adults.
