Writer and illustrator Catherine Gorski O’Connor of Appleton has released a new children’s book, “The Snowman Choir,” just in time for the holidays. O’Connor had hoped for a book launch this month, but was unable to do so due to COVID restrictions.

This winter story is about four children and the magic of a first snowfall. O’Connor’s first book, “I Love My Socks,” came out last year, and she postponed publishing a third book about Halloween.

“The Snowman Choir” is available at funkybirch.studio, Amazon, Fraternity Village General Store in Searsmont, and Out On A Whimsey in Belfast.
