Bri Ladwig: Love Stretches

Local illustrator Bri Ladwig launches the new picture book Love Stretches at the Raven! Books will be available for sale and signing.


When a Mama is separated from her babies by greater distances than they ever imagined, she sends her love through the magical portals of Nature to hold them. Stretching over deep seas, up to the stars, and down into the sweetest honeycomb, Mama always finds a way to make sure her babies feel her love. Whimsical and heartfelt, Love Stretches is an all-ages exploration of what it means to belong amidst loss and uncertainty.

Created and illustrated by Bri Ladwig, and words by Astrid Ortiz; this is a deeply aligned and cosmic collaboration between two queer divorced parents who are both examples of how contemporary families hold onto big love in challenging circumstances.


Bri Ladwig is a Black, queer, mama illustrator and doula based in Lawrence, Kansas.
