I Love You… Unconditionally
Written by Kelly Condon Illustrations by Pat Dobrinska

Wisconsin Author, Kelly Condon, was inspired with the idea for the book, I Love You…Unconditionally, when she was fighting cancer and wanted to give her children a message of love. Inspired, Kelly called friend and artist, Pat Dobrinska , and asked her to create the paintings.

Illustrator/Artist, Pat Dobrinska, is having a book signing and reading of her children’s book, I Love You… Unconditionally. You and your children can meet Pat and get a signed, personalized copy of the book. The original paintings, seen as illustrations in the book, will also be available for viewing and purchase Jan. 1st thru Feb. 19th.
