Aww . . . baby animals

From a Sundance Books and Music news release

Baby AnimalsSundance Books and Music will hold a book signing with author Jerri Conrad and designer Patrick Turner from 6:30 to 8 p.m. today. They’ll be signing their new board book, Our Nevada: Baby Animals (Baobab Press, 2015).

The book takes young readers on an adventure across Nevada’s contrasting landscapes, introducing them to a variety of young creatures who call our state home. They meet the peeking pika, the fluttering falcon, the strutting sage grouse and many more adorable animals on their journey. Our Nevada: Baby Animals is in both English and Spanish and is from Baobab Press, the publishing arm of Sundance Books and Music.

Conrad has a degree in journalism. She has traveled throughout Nevada for fun and for work and as a board member for a wilderness non-profit.

After a twenty-plus-year career as an advertising art director, Turner departed the agency world to become the director of marketing and communications for the Nevada Discovery Museum. Outside the museum world, he and his wife are raising two children and attempting to take them on worldwide cultural adventures while keeping them rooted in school, sports, community and family.
