Storytime with Author Alison Birks - Lua the Llama and the Mountain of Joy

The Hickory Stick Bookshop will host a children’s story time with author Alison Birks, who will read and sign copies of her new book Lua the Llama and the Mountain of Joy (Self Employed Press, $12.95) on Saturday, June 16th at 11am. The suggested age is 4 and older, but all ages are welcome and no registration is required.

Lua the Llama has a dream and sets out on a spiritual journey of self-discovery to find out who she really is. Under the guidance of the old healer don Paqo, she finds the nature of her true self and her place in the world as the Rainbow Llama. Based on the mystical teachings of the Andes, the author's personal experience is translated into a children's tale which teaches the important lessons of unconditional love, service, wisdom and reciprocity.

Lua the Llama and the Mountain of Joy is a sweet tale of discovering the grand nature of the self through the Andean connection to a living nature.” –Joan Parisi Wilcox, author of Masters of the Living Energy: The Mystical World of the Q’ero of Peru

Alison A. Birks is a mother of two, a life-long spiritual seeker and aspiring practitioner of the Andean mystical teachings of Peru.
