Children's Author & Illustrator TalkFriday May 14, 2021
4:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Please join the Milton Public Library and the Friends of the Library for a virtual visit with author Holly McGhee and illustrator Pascal Lemaitre! They will be sharing their new picture book, called What the World Could Make, coming out May 4 from Roaring Brook Press. We'll have time to hear the story, perhaps enjoy a drawing demonstration, and ask all of our questions about what it's like to make books. Best of all, Holly speaks English and Pascal speaks French, so this will be a bilingual event!
For ages 4 and up. Registration is required, and a Zoom link will be provided to registrants on the day of the event. Sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and by a generous grant from the Milton Junior Women's Club.
If you'd like to order your own copy of the book, please visit: https://www.thedotcentral.com/special-event-books/what-the-world-could-make-a-story-of-hope
