It’s a launch!

December 20th, 2013

Writing and publishing a book is a long, arduous process. There is of course the actual research and writing, followed by what seems like endless edits, changes, proofs, discussions about design, more changes. During the process it’s easy to lose sight — both for our authors and for us at Stenhouse — of the actual end product: a real, hard copy, printed book that people will actually buy and read.

So we are always happy to celebrate along with our authors when a new book is born. Most recently first-time Stenhouse author Laurie Rubin held a small gathering in Ithaca, NY, for her family, friends, and students, to celebrate the arrival of her book To Look Closely: Science and Literacy in the Natural World. In this book Laurie demonstrates how nature study can help students become careful, intentional observers of all they see, growing into stronger readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists in the process.

Here are some snapshots from her book launch party. We hope you will celebrate with us and Laurie buy previewing her book online and then buying a copy to put under a special teacher’s Christmas tree!
