“Quiet Art” is the story of a little girl, Wilda, and her persistent efforts to communicate with the noisy, impatient world through her art. Everyone is telling her to be "quiet!" She must learn, with support from her Grandma Gert, to express herself and use the power of her own imagination to rebuild trust, faith and family.

This book is a product of Irv’s Storytime, an organization that brings people together to share stories, illustrate them, and then produce books from their collaboration. Each finished story uses a variety of illustrations from the diverse people who participate as illustrators, and each book Irv’s Storytime publishes benefits a charity or cause. 70% of Quiet Art's profits benefit the Arts Education Partnership (AEP), a national coalition dedicated to ensuring a high quality arts education for every young person in America.

About the Author

Mark Kashman is a father of two wonderful children (Sophie and Eli) who love to hear and tell stories. And from this, Irv's Storytime was born.

Kashman works with the illustrators contributing to each story in the persona of “Irv,” who happens to be an owl and for whom “Irv’s Storytime” is named. According to Irv, “'I’m an owl hoo likes to write & tell stories, and gets great help from others hoo draw wonderful illustrations.”

Beyond writing and telling stories, Kashman lives East of Seattle where he likes to hike, bike and walk until the soles of his shoes wear thin.
