Center to Host Children's Illustrator Barbara McClintock

Leave Your Sleep.jpgIn partnership with the Education Department, the Center for Early Childhood Education will be hosting a book talk and book signing with award-winning illustrator Barbara McClintock. The event will be held on Thursday, November 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Joinery, and will celebrate the 2012 publications of two of McClintock's books.

Leave Your Sleep is a collection of classic children's poems by Edward Lear, Ogden Nash, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nathalia Crane, e.e. cummings, and others, all beautifully illustrated by McClintock. The poems are also adapted to music by Natalie Merchant on an enclosed CD. 

Twelve Kinds of Ice, written by Ellen Bryan Obed and illustrated by McClintock, explores the stages of the ice that beckons a family of skaters.

Teachers, students, and parents are invited to this special event to celebrate literacy, books, and the season of giving. Join us for a book talk, coffee, and some pre-holiday goodies!
