Children’s Book Signing at VIM!

VIM members have many talents, and this VIM couple’s talent is writing and illustrating children’s books!

Read on for info about their upcoming book signing…

book signingCambridge couple and VIM members Tom Crice and Ellen Rakatansky have just released Birds of a Feather, a sweet story of loss and recovery for young children.  The story is drawn from Tom’s own childhood experiences with his grandfather.

In this thoughtful and universally-appealing tale, a young boy’s happy life is interrupted when his grandfather passes away. Suddenly his world is full of big questions and difficult emotions. Will things ever be normal again?

“Crice captures the complexity of a child’s feelings with expert precision, taking a tough experience and exploring it with honesty. The soft-colored pencil and acrylic images by debut illustrator Rakatansky…match the story’s gentle tone perfectly.” – Kirkus Reviews

Ages 5 to 9 (and all the rest of us too)

Join us for a book signing by the author and illustrator!

When: Monday, June 18th @ 5:00 PM
Where: VIM Central Square

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
