Recently, a few talented Capstone authors were featured in the School Library Journal’s Pictures of the Week. The events at Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul, Minnesota, featured Capstone authors Jill Kalz, author of No Snow for Christmas; Nancy Loewen, author of Frankly, I Never Wanted to Kiss Anybody: The Story of the Frog Prince As Told By the Frog; and Trisha Speed Shaskan, author of Truly, We Both Loved Beauty Dearly: The Story of Sleeping Beauty As Told By the Good and Bad Fairies.
