Local artist Rachael Attili puts the finishing touches on a mural she painted on an entire wall of the Boys and Girls Club of Kingman.

Attili, who donated her time to paint the mural, said the painting "is an encouragement for reading and creative thinking." The painting depicts a giant book with fantasy characters coming out of it, and includes a knight in armor, a princess, and a girl sitting under a tree that sprouts books instead of leaves.

"It is an invitation to that ideal world," Attili said.
