Local singer/songwriter Mike Struwin has a new claim to fame: he’s now a published author! On Sunday, November 12 at The Livery in Benton Harbor, Struwin and family are celebrating the launch of his new project, “Campfire Stu”: a story and musical performance series aimed towards kids, but geared toward the enjoyment of parents, too!

Earlier this year, Struwin, whose “day job” is a school-based speech pathologist for Dowagiac Public Schools, signed a distribution contract with Mascot Books of Herndon, VA for “Campfire Stu and the Backwoods Jamboree”, an interactive children’s book illustrated by Muskegon native and Grand Rapids Art Prize finalist Eric Kravako.

The book for early-readers was released in stores nationwide on October 17 and features the character “Stu” as he travels on a “Walkabout”, meets new animal friends, solves problems and learns about responsibility and cooperation.

What makes this particular book so unique? Each copy comes with a coupon to download a special companion CD – for free – featuring an audiobook performed by a full cast of award winning voice actors and containing accompanying songs and music, written and performed by Struwin and company.

So, while many authors host book signings, Mike Struwin puts on an all-out jamboree.

The Campfire Stu Book/CD release party at the Livery in Benton Harbor begins at 2pm and is a free family-friendly event featuring a live reading and performance of Campfire Stu songs by Struwin, followed by interactive games inspired by the book and an author book signing.
