laqaixit tewee - "dancing light"
The Magical Swan
Opening Reception Thursday August 7, 5:30-7pm
LAQAIXIT TEWEE enjoyed writing this eight-book, multiple-story adventure drawing upon her life experiences both as a child growing up in a rural environment and as a world traveler.
In this final Magical Swan episode, the author causes the conclusion of the Silverrealm epic to have a surprise twist that unites all of the Winterbloom and Magical Swan – Series I – books, and The Magical Swan and the Chronicles of Silverrealm Series II – stories together at last. Twenty-five years after having begun the story by hand and having gone through 4 computer crashes she is grateful to see it finally published. Had she known at the start that she would be painting a total of 465 illustrations for the entire series under her artist name Dancing Light she might not have had the courage to publish such a large endeavor.
