Sourdough critters tell stories

Children's book reading more than just stories

Victoria illustrator Eliska Liska and Cobble Hill author Kathy Sager launch their first children’s book, Suzie’s Sourdough Circus, with a reading on Sunday (Sept. 11).

The book sees a cast of sourdough performers get into all kinds of trouble as they blow bubbles to make the bread rise.

The launch (2 p.m. at Tall Tale Books, 795 Fort St.) is a great opportunity to experience working with sourdough first hand, as both women are adept bakers. The book includes not only stories, but recipes for bread, flapjacks and other sourdough goodies.
