Meet Braxten & Brooklyn

Born at 34 weeks, both babies were in the NICU, but Braxten also had Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) which is poor growth of a fetus while in the womb.



When baby Paisley was only 16 days old, she was flown in from Shreveport, LA to receive medical treatment at Children’s Hospital New Orleans. 


Lily, age 12, was diagnosed with Dopa Response Dystonia, which involves involuntary contraction, tremors, and other uncontrolled movements.

Sweet Dreams Author Event with Rick Telander

Garden District Book Shop 2727 Prytania St UNIT 14, New Orleans

Storytime: Sweet Dreams: Poems and Paintings for the Child Abed

Rick Telander will read from his book, Sweet Dreams: Poems and Paintings for the Child Abed.

With 42 original poems by author Rick Telander and an equal number of full-page, full-color illustrations from 42 different artists from four countries, Sweet Dreams is a beautiful, easy-to-read poetry collection in the fashion of Robert Louis Stevenson's century-old classic, A Child's Garden of Verses.

Started when Telander was sick in a bed many years ago and had begun writing the poems in his head, this book is a work of caring for young boys and girls who must make that ordinary yet complex and sometimes frightening transition from waking reality to the land of Nod.

Sweet Dreams will amuse, delight, intrigue, and above all soothe any child before sleep. This book is a gift to all children, the way the best illustrated words can be.

Event date:
Tuesday, May 21, 2024 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Event address:
The Garden District Book Shop
2727 Prytania St
New Orleans, LA 70130
