Mountain Brook Writers’ Festival

Author Timothy A. Weeks and his wife, illustrator Lala Rascic, talk mullets and book magic with Max and Harry Evans of Brookwood Forest Elementary at the 2011 Mountain Brook Writer's Festival.

Timothy A. Weeks was one of four children’s authors participating in the annual Mountain Brook Writers’ Festival, hosted by the elementary schools of Mountain Brook, Alabama.

Beginning April 12, Weeks, along with wife and co-illustrator Lala Rascic, read and acted out Goldie’s Search for Silver at Brookwood Forest, Cherokee Bend and Mountain Brook Elementary on consecutive days, bringing the Gulf Coast into the classroom and nurturing a love of reading and inspiration for writing.

Other authors included Tim Green, Irene Latham and Mike Artell.

Weeks and his wife would like to specially thank the festival event coordinators for ensuring such a memorable week, in particular event organizer Cilie Cowin who had these kind words to share: “I cannot tell you how much positive feedback we are receiving from your visits. Thank you for touching the lives of our kids!”
