Experiment #256, with children's author/illustrator Marty Kelley

Saturday, September 21st, 2019, 11 a.m.

Children's author/illustrator Marty Kelley visits Gibson's Bookstore to present Experiment #256, a charming book for children interested in experimenting, and in STEM.

Ian is wild about science experiments and for his latest (number 256) he's building a jet pack for his dog, Wilbur--the leftover parts shouldn't be anything to worry about, right? When Wilbur dons his new pack and blasts off, he leave a swath of chaos in his wake and nobody is happy, Wilbur least of all. What's a budding inventor to do?

About the author/illustrator: "I’m currently a children’s author and illustrator but have, in the past, been a second grade teacher, a baker, a cartoonist, a newspaper art director, a drummer in a heavy metal band, a balloon delivery guy, an animator, and lots of other things.  I’ll probably continue writing and illustrating children’s books for many years to come because there are few other jobs where being able to paint a perfect booger-bubble is an actual job requirement."
