When: Tue., Oct. 4, 5 p.m.
This book launch doubles as a birthday party. Author Melany Kahn and illustrator Ellen Korbonski celebrate the publication of their new children’s book, Mason Goes Mushrooming, with a signing and a cake. October 4 would have been the 95th birthday of Wolf Kahn, the celebrated West Brattleboro painter and Melany’s late father. The story of a young boy who learns over four seasons how to find mushrooms in the woods behind his home, the book is inspired by Melany’s own passion for foraging, which she inherited from her father.
