Come Celebrate the Magic of Sourdough with Kathy Sager and Eliska Liska

Posted: Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 5:29pm

This month, come meet author Kathy Sager and illustrator Eliska Liska as they celebrate the release of their first children's book, Suzie’s Sourdough Circus. They will be having a series of events where they will be reading from the book, in which a cast of sourdough performers get into all kinds of trouble as they blow bubbles to make the bread rise. They will also be speaking to children about the wonder of sourdough.

  • Victoria Launch: Tall Tales Books (795 Fort Street) on Sunday, September 11 at 2:00pm
  • Duncan Launch: Ten Old Books (#102-330 Duncan Street) on Sunday, September 18 at 2:00pm
  • Word on The Street- Vancouver: The Raise-A-Reader Corner (Library Square) on Sunday, September 25 at 1:00pm
  • Vancouver Reading: Kokopelli Cafe (4593 Dunbar Street) on Monday, September 26 at 3:30pm

These events are a great opportunity to experience the magic of sourdough first hand. After the kids see Eliska Liska’s bright and playful sourdough creatures cavort and frolic, they will want their very own sourdough starter. Kathy will show off her 100-year old starter, and she will have some available that eager sourdough bakers can bring home.

Suzie’s Sourdough Circus, written in rhyming prose, will to appeal to both children and their grown-up sous-chefs. Young readers are sure to be inspired by little Suzie and her zany sourdough circus as they learn a simple method to bake wholesome and tangy sourdough bread. Also included are illustrated recipes for other delicious sourdough baking, like authentic Yukon flapjacks, whole grain sourdough bannock and chocolate vanilla sourdough cake, all tested by Suzie!
