LEO Author Carla Diana at the MakerBot Store

Carla reads from LEO the Maker Prince

Carla Diana, author of our new kids’ book, LEO the Maker Prince, is visiting all the MakerBot retail stores with her book (and prints!). LEO takes a fanciful, beautifully illustrated trip through the world of 3D printing, and hopes to inspire everyone, young or old, to become a maker.

Nick Normal caught (and photographed) Carla’s appearance at the New York City MakerBot store on Saturday. She’ll be in the Boston store on Jan, 25, 2014 and in the Greenwich, CT store on Feb. 1. Check out her upcoming appearances.

Each of the objects featured in the book are printable and available for free download.
