Prepare to be delighted and amazed when you meet part-time Park City local Silas Stark, age 7, who has developed the most enjoyable anger-management method yet–going to the land of UM. Silas will be with us to answer questions and sign copies of his illustrated children’s book UM Land.

Follow Silas along as he discovers Um Land for the first time and learns how to go to Um Land to deal with different, real-life situations. Um Land book is for kids (well, really all people) to learn what to do when they get mad, frustrated, sad, or feel any other emotion that hurts inside. Most of the time we are happy. Sometimes we get red-hot-booty mad. Go to Um Land to return to that place of love, peace, and happiness. Some of Silas’ favorite books are “Dragon Loves Tacos”, “Knuffle Bunny”, and “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus”.

This may be just what you need to get through the stress of the FEST!
