MASON CITY | Children’s book author Karen Carr will introduce her new book, "Littlest Penguin," from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday May 2, at CoffeeCat.
This is Carr’s third picture book.
People are invited to meet the author, learn about the writing process and purchase signed copies of this new release as well as other work by Carr.
Although born and raised near Spencer, Carr has called Mason City her home since 1981 . She is newly-retired from Mercy Medical Center after working there for 33 years.
She has four grandchildren who give her many ideas for her books.
In "Littlest Penguin,'" Pogo is teased by the other penguins because he is so small. His mother explains that he is God’s creation and cautions him not to put himself down when he is special in God’s eyes.
