Peter Brown, author/illustrator of the middle grade book The Wild Robot, its sequel The Wild Robot Escapes, and many others, will visit the Library on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. Brown will discuss the process of creating The Wild Robot along with insights into his creative development from childhood to the present. He will also present a drawing demonstration, along with some quick lessons. Following will be a question and answer period, and time for book signing.
On Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. Brown returns to greet his younger fans. Preschoolers and their parents/caregivers are invited to listen to a story and learn how he illustrates his picture books. Some of his books geared towards a younger audience include Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Children Make Terrible Pets, My Teacher is a Monster, The Curious Garden, and many more.
