Event date: 
Saturday, May 9, 2015 - 11:00am

Join us for a special Saturday Story Time with Harry Bliss!

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Harry Bliss is a cartoonist and New Yorker cover artist. He has illustrated numerous bestselling picture books for children. He lives in Vermont.

ABOUT THE BOOK: When a young boy learns about what makes art special—sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it tells a story—he realizes that these same characteristics are what make his grandmother special, too. As a result, he finds the inspiration to create his own masterpiece that’s one of a kind. Christopher Award–winning author Scott Menchin and New York Times bestselling illustrator Harry Bliss have teamed up for a celebration of the power of art and expression, and the extraordinary love between grandparent and child.

"This helps fill a critical need for art-loving black child characters. A good bridge to take children from comic tropes to fine art."
-Kirkus Reviews

"By steering readers into the heady realm of context, criteria, and taste, everyone becomes a critic - and that's an illuminating, empowering thing."
-Publishers Weekly
