Award-winning author visits children's library, Nov. 10
Posted November 7, 2002; 09:55 a.m.
Allen Say, an award-winning children's author and illustrator, will speak at the Cotsen Children's Library at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10.
Say will give a slide presentation about an upcoming picture book and talk about his other works, which have won the Caldecott Medal and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, among other prizes.
Say's books depart from traditional children's literature by recounting, through realistic and often melancholy images and text, the experiences of Japanese-American immigrants. His "illustrated talk" is recommended for families with children age 8 and older, and other interested adults. It is open to the public free of charge, but pre-registration is requested.
