Manheim Community Library welcomes author Mike Resh, Jr. and illustrator Steven Kernen to read from their children’s book, Dneirf.
About the Book: After having a difficult morning, a boy named Otto struggles with having positive interactions with his friends at school. He learns that his friendship struggles are due to him doing things “backwards” that a true friend would do or being a “Dneirf.” With the help of his peers and school counselor, Otto is able to turn himself around and move in the right direction towards becoming a true or forward friend to himself and others.
Resh and Kernen will read from the book, discuss how it was created, and sign books. Copies will be available for purchase.
Mike Resh, Jr. is a school counselor at Landisville Primary Center in Hempfield School District. He was recognized by the Pennsylvania School Counselors Association as the 2015 Elementary School Counselor of the Year.
Steven Kernen is an illustrator and Hempfield School District parent.
