Dorothy is Moving Mountains book signing to be held Saturday
IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE:
A U.P. children’s author is hosting a book signing this weekend.
Dorothy Paad recently published her second book, Dorothy is Moving Mountains. It’s a prequel to her first book, Dance Your Dance, Sing Your Song. It recounts her experience learning how to downhill ski with Cerebral Palsy, which she says gave her an immense confidence boost. She learned from the Moving Mountains Adaptive Ski Program.
Paad says both books are a response to the low representation of people with disabilities in children’s books.
“When I was a child, there weren’t books with characters in the books in wheelchairs,” said Dorothy Paad, author. “So, I always wondered ‘where am I represented in this story?’ So, I want to inspire all children, but especially those with disabilities, and to have them see themselves represented in stories.”
Meet Dorothy and explore the Moving Mountains Adaptive Program Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Pine Mountain Ski and Golf Resort. Her presentation and book signing runs from 1:15 p.m. until 3 p.m. central time.
