Craig Orback's on fire!

Local illustrator and teacher Craig Orback has two exciting things going on:

Seattle author Cameron Dokey and illustrator Craig Orback are having a book launch party and signing this Saturday at Magnolia Books in Seattle from 1-3pm for their new book, Boys Camp Book #1- Zack's Story. This is the first in a fun new middle-grade series about the adventures of a group of boys at a summer camp. Each book follows a different character from the same cabin.
