Iowa City author Michelle Edwards has written over a dozen books for children, including Chicken Man, which won the National Jewish Book Award. In her latest picture book, Room for the Baby (illustrated by Jana Christy), a family makes room for baby #2 by transforming hoarded cast-offs into useful and fun craft projects. Michelle's other new book (nonfiction for adults), A Knitter's Home Companion, is an illustrated collection of thoughtful essays, knitting patterns, and recipes. Michelle, who illustrated many of her picture books, studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and earned an MFA in printmaking from the University of Iowa. Meet her in Fairfield Friday, Dec. 7th during a book signing/reading in the At Home Store on the town square.
