Kah-Lan and the Stink-Ink Virtual Book Events

“Karen Autio has that great gift, which is to write a gripping story with a streamlined, yet richly specific vocabulary. I so enjoyed the physicality of Kah-Lan’s swimming and diving and grooming. This story of a young sea otter is also full of dangerous moments, which is realistic, and this makes for a real page-turner… with end-of-chapter cliff-hangers kids love!.”
Caroline Woodward, lighthouse keeper and author of ten books for adults and children including A West Coast Summer and Light Years: Memoir of a Modern Lighthouse Keeper

The virtual launch of Karen Autio’s new chapter book Kah-Lan and the Stink-Ink will be hosted by the Vancouver Aquarium on Tuesday, September 22, 2020. Emma Pedersen (illustrator) and Lindsaye Akhurst (Manager, Marine Mammal Rescue Centre) will join Karen to present and answer questions. It’s free and child-friendly. And it’s Sea Otter Awareness Week and Science Literacy Week! Register here:
