Join us at McNally Jackson Books, our Seaport location, to meet award-winning author and illustrator Cynthia Alonso. We're thrilled to help launch Cynthia's new book, The Reader (Crocodile Books, Interlink Publishing), a wonderful collaboration between two acclaimed Argentinean creators, Cynthia Alonso (illustrator) and Luciana De Luca (author). This stunning picture book is an illustrated love letter to books, an exciting celebration of reading and a child's imagination. Kirkus, awarding The Reader a starred review, notes "Cynthia pushes color and shape to the limit . . . the vibrancy and texture of the illustrations really drive home the text's invitation to explore imaginative new worlds." Cynthia will read, sign books, and help kids create images inspired by their own reading. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
