Book Release: Dark & Light

On Sunday, Nov. 11, Shasta Kearns Moore releases her new children’s board book, Dark & Light: A Love Story in Black and White. The launch party will be at 2 p.m. at Annie Bloom’s Books in Portland, and it’s kid-friendly. Funds raised support her son Malachi with his cerebral palsy treatments, and ten percent of the proceeds go to other children with functional needs. Malachi and his identical twin JJ–now 2–were born premature, and a brain injury at birth caused Malachi’s cerebral palsy.

“I am overjoyed at the reception this book is getting,” she said. “It really is a dream come true for me to finally have a fun and inspiring way to pay for my son’s medical costs.”

Shasta was one of the fifteen authors interviewed in Brave on the Page. We discussed Dark & Light and her success raising funds through Kickstarter to support the publishing project. For more information, visit and RSVP to the book release party on Facebook.

    It looks like a lovely book. And what a creative idea she had for helping her son and others!

    • I love that Shasta took the problem in hand and set about finding a creative solution that’ll help not only her family but other kids in need. I’m glad to be able to support her!
