his exciting new series offers families a unique opportunity to meet renowned children’s book illustrators and learn about their creative processes. At each event, a featured illustrator will participate in a book reading and give a presentation about his or her artwork and practice. Following the reading, families will create their own works of art inspired by the book and its illustrations. Each ticket also includes a complimentary copy of the book, which will be signed at the event by the illustrator.

Tomie dePaola is one of the most beloved children’s book authors and illustrators of our time. In his newest picture book, Quiet, dePaola reminds us that mindfulness—being quiet, still, and present with one another—is a very special thing.
