Area Artist and Writer Publishes Book

Celebrate Books and Hockey at the West Acres Mall

Celebrate with Curious Cat Books as they launch their first title ​Where I Fly: A Hockey Story​ on Saturday, January 26 from 12 – 2pm in front of the Legacy Toys store at the West Acres Mall in Fargo. Author K. M. Allen will be signing books and will be offering free kids crafts and coloring pages.

Where I Fly: A Hockey Story ​cheers for hockey played on the lake surrounded by forest and lit by northern lights. A child imagines a future of cheering crowds and successful trick shots as animals peer from the edges. Appealing to hockey players of all ages, this book is likely to start conversations about young dreams and promote a family bond that is formed around the love of hockey. A non-fiction section provides information about the night sky and teaches hockey terms.

Where I Fly: A Hockey Story ​is the first book in the ​Play Wild! Series ​that is designed to create excitement for outdoor activities and emphasize building family connections that don’t involve screen time. The next book in the series is ​Where We Run: A Dog Sledding Story​ and is currently taking pre-orders.
