St. Louis Park author releases book about dealing with cancer

St. Louis Park author Aurora Whittet will release a new resource available for families on a cancer journey.

Whittet’s book, “Mama’s Knight: A Cancer Story of Love,” launches 10:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, Nov. 13, with a public party at the Dunn Brothers “Freight House,” 2301 Third Ave. S. in Minneapolis.

“Mama’s Knight” is a customizable children’s book mothers can use to explain cancer to their kids. Whittet lost her own mother to cancer, and Minnesota Oncology endorsed the book.

Whittet used a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the book effort.
