Can a pencil really last for 35 miles? How would you go about proving that fact makes for an inventive fun book, How a Lemonade Lid Changed My Summer by Sharon Solomon discusses this fun adventure and the creation of her historic fiction picture books that make history come alive for adults as well as children.
We all know about Captain John Smith, but who was the real hero of the Jamestown Colony? Was there really a black female Buffalo Soldier? What is the special game a child plays when she goes for a walk with her Grandpa?
Sharon's latest book Lewis Tewanima Born to Run is a picture bio about a Hopi who won the silver medal in the 1912 Olympics, another example of how her curiosity and story-telling skill creates books for all ages.
And to fill out this program, co-producer Don Canaan reads from his short story about growing up in The Bronx and his transition to puberty.
Author Frank Monahan is not only an acclaimed children's book author of The Stanley and Norman Series, but he is also the President and CEO of the independent publishing company Rocket Science Productions.

Wendy Marie Withers is a wife, mother, licensed minister and a new author of a children's book titled, Adventures of My Brothers's Keeper - Let Our Ball Go!. Wendy's love for writing blossomed during her junior high school years. She would eventually grow fond of the writings of Edgar Allan Poe - not for the darkness that his writings foretold, but for the use of his play of words and creative descriptions.
As a Christian and a mother, it has always been a desire for Wendy to incorporate the spreading of the joy and the knowledge of our Heavenly Father while engaing the imaginiation and minds of our youth. Her new children's book does just that.
Wendy is a resident of Reidsville, NC where she lives with her husband of 17 years and their teenage sons.

Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author H. Alan Day joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs. We may even get a chance to hear a bit about the book he co-authored with his sister Sandra Day O'connor back in 2002. That book was Lazy B: Growing Up On a Cattle Ranch in the American Southwest
The Horse Lover is Alan's personal history of starting the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary, which was located on 35,000 acres in the Sand Hills of South Dakota. After successfully lobbying Congress to approve the idea, Alan received 1500 wild horses in 1989 from the Bureau of Land Management. His deep connection with the animals in his care is clear from the outset, as is his maverick philosophy of horse-whispering, which he used to train the entire herd. The memoir reveals the Heculean task of balancing the requirements of the government with the needs of the wild horses. He story also weaves in cowboying adventures that Alan had on some of his best horses and the lessons of perseverance, steadfastness, and hope he learned from these four-legged friends. Booklist is calling the memoir “an instant classic.” The story also is relevant to today’s wild horse issues that are costing the BLM $70 million per year. Washington is home to government-owned wild mustangs.
Tune in Friday at 11AM EST or listen to the archive.
