Sales to aid
Edmond resident Rita Gray-Martin will sign copies of her book, “Erick,” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 28 at Vintage Timeless Coffee, 900 NW 150 in Oklahoma City. 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. As an educator, Gray-Martin encounters children who are angry. In her book, a student acts out and his teacher discovers why he is angry. The book 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, rag dolls, coloring books, CDs and bookmarks will be available.
