Hudson grad writes Christmas book

Published: December 16, 2012 12:00 AM

Hudson High school graduate Jenny Shanahan will be at the Learned Owl Book Shop, 204 N. Main St. in Hudson, Dec. 22 at 1 p.m. with her holiday book "Lost and Found Jesus the Greatest Treasure." She will be joined by illustrator Lauren Arsena.

The children's book is about the three Magi in search of baby Jesus.

"As the Magi journey to find Jesus, the kings will travel in your house for children to find," Shanahan said. "Children are reminded to think of Jesus as they look for the new places the kings are in their travels. The journey ends on Epiphany (Jan. 6) when the Magi reach baby Jesus."

Shanahan, a 1998 Hudson High School graduate, has been married to her husband, Mike, for almost 10 years. They have three children.

Shanahan has a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a reading endorsement from the Franciscan University of Steubenville and a master's degree from Kent State University in curriculum and instruction. She taught kindergarten in Garrettsville for four years before staying home with her children.

Arsena, the book's illustrator, is studying Visual Communication Design at Kent State University.

"Lost and Found: Jesus the Greatest Treasure" is available at The Learned Owl; Our Lady's Gifts in Streetsboro; Grismer's in Akron, Macedonia and Stow locations; Logos Bookstore in Kent; and St. Joseph's Parish Bookstore in Cuyahoga Falls. Books may also be ordered by sending an email to lostandfoundbookorders@gmail.com and through the publisher http://goodplacepublishing.com.
