Come to the Highlands Center January 9th, 2016 at 1:00pm for children’s story time. There will be a reading by author Diane Phelps Budden, from her book “Shade: A Story about a Very Smart Raven”, followed by a meeting with Shade the Raven herself and a fun and engaging craft.

Diane Phelps Budden of Sedona, AZ spent over 30 years in corporate and academic marketing before beginning her writing career. She self-published Shade; A Story About A Very Smart Raven. With this experience, she wrote and self-published The Author’s Concise Guide to Marketing: how to jumpstart sales of your self-published book for first-time authors needing marketing skills.

In 2013, Budden responded to the need for a non-fiction book about ravens for middle grade children, as well as adult raven lovers, by publishing The Un-Common Raven: One Smart Bird. This title is illustrated with beautiful photographs by Loren Haury of Sedona, and contains a glossary, bibliography, and index to assist teachers with classroom activities.

Highly recommended by Midwest Book Review; finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona 2013 Book Awards.
