April 14 – Local author Jim Petipaw talks about how he began his career as a children’s book author. Jim has always been creating art. When he was a kid he would often be found drawing cars, animals or boats. Throughout his teen and college years he was creating music as a drummer in a few local bands. About ten years ago Jim’s daughters encouraged him to illustrate and publish a children’s picture book based on a song he co-wrote in high school. This led to the fruition of, “The Cows Go Moo!” Jim also went into the studio and recorded the song that accompanies the book.
