Join us at the bookshop on Saturday, September 24th at 5pm to celebrate the launch of Steve Scher's children's book, The Moon Bear.
The Moon Bear, a full-color children’s book released by Clyde Hill Publishing, marks the literary debut of Seattle’s beloved Public Radio host Steve Scher, who built a devoted audience at KUOW-FM by giving guests the space to present their ideas with nuance. Scher brings similar sensitivity, and an ear for poetic language, to his newest project.
A personality at Seattle’s KUOW radio for more than twenty-seven years, Scher now writes on Whidbey Island, where he hears to coyotes howling, watches bats flit across the starry sky, and listens to tree frogs serenading one another. Sometimes, on nights when there is a big full moon, he knows there may also be a marvelous creature shaking a big old tree.
The night can be a scary time. It is dark. It can be a magical time too. Stars are out, the moon is bright. Strange and perhaps marvelous noises drift in through an open window. Gwen, a little girl in a very big bed, awakens to a noise one night and goes to her window. In the tree outside, she finds a very big bear.
