Dr. Laurie Boulden, Assistant Professor in the Teacher Education department, has self-published a children’s book through CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.  Her book, entitled “Creating Gold:  A Rumpelstiltskin Fairy Tale” is available for purchase at Amazon.com with a big book version being made available next year.  This book will also be available soon in an e-book format.

A summary of the book on the Amazon website reads “Rumpelstiltskin has the gift to create gold, but greed grows ever hungrier. How can love win if an evil king is determined to destroy all hope? This fresh retelling of the classic Rumpelstiltskin Fairy Tale will delight readers of all ages.” Other Teacher Education faculty members and their students look forward to reading Dr. Boulden’s first published work!! She often talks of her weekends spent at writing workshops, so it’s a celebration for the entire department to see her hard work take shape.  Kudos to Dr. Boulden!!!
