Crowe and Dawson release children’s book

Written by 

Jackson County writer Thomas Crowe and illustrator Marilyn K. Dawson will celebrate the publication of their children’s book, The Wake Up Man, at Grateful Steps Publishing and Bookshop at 159 S. Lexington Ave. in Asheville at 10:30 a.m. on June 4.

The public is welcome and refreshments will be served along with the reading, talk and booksigning. Children are welcome at both the evening and following morning’s events.

Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
