Lynn Hinga Branderhorst ’79 is collaborating with Callie Gardeman ’18, Ann Hinga Klein ’80, Professor of Chemistry Cathy Hinga Haustein ’76, Professor of Art Treva Reimer, Michelle Stam and Sarah Purdy ’16 to create a children’s picture book.

Branderhorst wrote the text, Gardeman produced illustrations and Reimer connected the two women. Branderhorst’s sisters Haustein and Klein offered editorial suggestions. Stam and Purdy of The Write Place in Pella served as the book’s designer and editorial facilitator, respectively. The collaborators plan to offer the book, “Not-A-Care Island,” via online outlets and local bookstores in Fall 2018.
