Melany Kahn
Mason Goes Mushrooming

Melany Kahn started hunting for mushrooms in Vermont in 1968 when her family bought a farm in West Brattleboro. She attended Wesleyan University, (BA, English/Creative Writing). She holds a Masters in Social Work from Boston College and MFA in Film from The Tisch School at NYU where she met her illustration collaborator, Ellen Korbonski. 

Melany lives in New Hampshire with her husband and children, and you can find her leading mushroom walks or foraging at every opportunity. Mason Goes Mushrooming is her first book.

This first-of-its kind foraging story from Melany Kahn and Ellen Korbonski,   Mason Goes Mushrooming takes us on a woodland treasure hunt.

Join Melany Kahn for an interactive kid -friendly activities about mushrooms. Examine and identify real local mushrooms. Grab provided materials to make your own wooden, paper or model mushrooms to take home. And the author will be available to lead a mushroom walk in the woods following the event, if you are interested.

A brilliant introduction to mushrooms for children!
