When a soldier’s work takes him half-way around the world, he enlists the help of the North Star for a nightly game of catch with his son. Night Catch is a timeless story that connects families while they are apart and offers comforting hope for their reunion.
Author Brenda Ehrmantraut was inspired to write Night Catch when her brother deployed to Iraq. She wanted to create a story that would connect and comfort his family during their year apart.
About Night Catch, she says, “I love hearing how parents and grandparents get choked up reading it; it makes me feel like I’ve made a human connection and a tiny little difference.“ Brenda feels honored to play a small part in supporting the sacrifices military families make through the distribution of her book.
The beautiful artwork in Night Catch was created by illustrator Vicki Wehrman.
View Night Catch in a fulldome show at the Mayborn Science Theater in Killeen, Texas.
