Rockford Publisher Zombie Logic Press To Unveil Book With Unique Cover At City Market

Zombie Logic Press will host a book release party for local author Stephen Schreiner's second children's book, The Koa Tree, at the RAAC booth at City Market Friday, July 13th. The book, which Schreiner co-wrote with his grandaughter Ava Fitzsimmons, was lavishly illustrated by Renee Noelle Jacobs, and is a fable of the lessons learned by a tribe of native islanders on their quest to build a boat mighty enough to reach Tahiti. Both authors, as well as the illustrator, will be available to sign copies and discuss their book.

The Koa Tree is the sixth book in the Rock River Literary Series, which seeks to publish and promote Rockford area writers to a local, regional, and national audience. The series is dedicated to long time local publisher Frank Schier, who passed away in 2017. 

Working in tandem with local design wizards at Mainfraim, the author was able to realize a dream of his to have this book made available with a glass cover. Copies of the book with the glass cover will be available as well a paperback version. Previously Zombie Logic Press has worked with Mainfraim to release a book with a wooden cover, and has plans to experiment with even more unique formats in the near future. Those books are assembled entirely here in Rockford.
