Author Christian Robinson (PRINCE STREET)

We're thrilled to welcome Christian Robinson, award-winning Caldecott and Coretta Scott King honoree. Christian is the genius illustrator and collaborator behind a bookshelf of fantastic works: Last Stop on Market Street (Matt de la Peña), Leo: A Ghost Story (Mac Barnett), School's First Day of School (Adam Rex), Gaston (Kelly DiPucchio), Carmela Full of Wishes (Matt de la Peña), and many more. In Another, Christian's debut as both author and illustrator, we encounter an intrepid young girl who meets her doppelgänger. Christian explores the question: what if you saw yourself in a book—literally? What might happen? Christian plays with gravity, space, and the physical format of the picture book, encouraging readers to question their preconceptions and consider new perspectives. Christian will read, sign books, and (to celebrate St. Patrick's Day) he'll help kids design green garland crowns and create their own alternate reality doppelgängers. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
