Books of Wonder is proud to present an afternoon with author/illustrator KELLI ANDERSON for her beautiful pop-up book This Book is a Planetarium.

Kelli Anderson is an artist, designer, and tinkerer who pushes the limits of ordinary materials and formats to seek out hidden possibilities. Her work puts forth the notion that intimate, handheld experiences can challenge our complacency regarding how the fundamentals work. Her latest book, This Book is a Planetarium, reveals a different functional paper contraption with each page turned: a constellation-projecting planetarium, a strummable musical instrument, a geometric drawing generator, a perpetual calendar, a message encrypter and decoder, and a speaker that amplifies sound.

So join us Sunday, January 21st from 3-5pm at our 217 W. 84th Street location for wonderful afternoon where Kelli Anderson will share a little bit about her work, her process, her research, and to answer questions about design, paper engineering, and pop-up book production. Kids particapate in workshop where they can build a pop-up paper speaker to amplify audio from your phone! (To sit on your desk, to instigate public dance parties, and to make power-outrages more fun!) Join designer and paper engineer Kelli Anderson to build the speaker spread from her new book, This Book is a Planetarium. The very basics of how pop-up books work will be covered and the basics of sound will also be discussed.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Space will be limited to 15 kids for the workshop portion of our event. Please be sure to RSVP with our 84th St store (212) 989-1804, if your child would like to participate in the workshop. All glue, paper, and materials will be provided!
