Book Launch & Story time

Come out for old fashioned pioneer fun and storytelling with the book launch of Katie Andrews Potter's first children's book: When Mother Read Aloud: The Life Story of Almyra King Holsclaw. Based on the memoir of Katie's great-great-great grandmother, Almyra, who lived her whole life in Jennings County, Indiana. The book was edited by Katie and includes a biography of Almyra. It was illustrated by five Indiana high school students and is steeped in Indiana pioneer history.

The event will include two storytelling times with Katie reading the book aloud, along with another children's book she has written with her daughter about another ancestor, Nellie Hitchcock Mulry, plus a recitation of Little Orphant Annie by Katie's mother Laurie Andrews, in honor of the Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley on his birthday. 

This event will be held in the 1830s Hendricks log cabin on site at Johnson County Museum of History in Franklin, Indiana. Take time to explore the museum when you are there (and their genealogy library!), and don't miss the two storytelling times at 1:30 and 2:30 in the cabin. 

Book signing and sales will be available, of the children's book as well as Katie's two young adult historical fiction novels, Going over Home and Going over Jordan. 

Hope to see you there!
