Local Writer Publishes Four Books in a Year

Claire Jeffries |

Rob Reid, a local freelance storyteller and UW-Eau Claire senior lecturer, will have published four books in a year’s time, not to mention writing articles for magazines (including this one), advancing new book projects, and creating world peace. Well, he’s still working on the world peace. More Family Storytimes was published in the fall of 2008 as a sequel to his 1999 Family Storytime book. The book contains stories and other activities to lighten the library experience. Shake and Shout was also published in 2008, and includes lesson plans for a story program. Also making an appearance this spring are the books:  Reid’s Read Alouds, which highlights 200 books for anyone from elementary to high school age, and Comin’ Down to Storytime, a picture book hummed to the classic She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain.
