Sandra Nowicki and Nick Cibrario invite the public, including children and grandparents, to their book signings on Saturday, February 9th from 6:00-9:00pm at the KAAleidscope Gallery, 5615-7th Avenue in downtown Kenosha.
Sandra’s imagination and her experience raising horses inspired her to write and illustrate her first children’s book “Sparkles, the Christmas Pony.” Her story was written for children between ages three and ten, but appeals to adults who like ponies and horses. Sandra’s skillful plot begins with sorrow on the ranch and ends with joy among the ponies and their riders. She is currently working on a sequel and expects to have the next book about Sparkles available in the spring. In addition to signing her books Sandra would be honored to read a few pages upon request on Saturday.
Nick’s experiences while living in Nepal led him to write “The Garden of Kathmandu Trilogy” and it’s sequel, “Murder in the Mountains,” involving the adventures of Carl Brecht, an anthropologist . Having been raised on a farm in Kenosha, Nick also wrote “Secrets on the Family Farm” set in 1951, involving Adam, a ten-year old boy. He is currently working on the sequel, “A Desperate Decision,” which is a love story and a murder mystery, featuring Adam and Naomi in 1956. All of Nick’s novels will be on sale at reduced prices. Nick would also be happy to read passages of his current manuscript
