Edmond author/educator to sign book
Edmond resident Rita Gray-Martin will sign copies of her book 'Erick' from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 28 at Vintage Timeless Coffee, 900 NW 150 in Oklahoma City.
As an educator, Gray-Martin encounters children who are very angry. In her book, a student acts out. Gray, his teacher, discovers why he is angry.
Erick shows how a caring and loving relationship from an adult can make a positive difference in a child’s life.
“'Erick' is meant to help adults understand and take the time to investigate further into a child’s outbursts," Gray-Martin said. "Children see themselves in Erick.”
In addition to hardback and paperback books, Erick rag dolls, coloring books, CDs and bookmarks will be available. Ten percent of sales that day benefit Best Friends of Pets, a local animal welfare organization dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation by helping pets and their owners.
Rita Gray-Martin has spent more than three decades in education. She is a certified trainer of trainers, transformation coach, and motivational speaker.

Kim Schlittler is executive director of Best Friends of Pets.
