PICTURE BOOK BIOGRAPHIES
Every wondered who made the first animated movie? Or how French cooking became so popular in the United States? Books of Wonder has the answers! (In the form of some very fun picture book biographies!) These biographies tell the stories of five incredible women, from a painter whose art hangs in the White House, to a budding paleontologist who changed how we think about dinosaurs, to the only woman whose name is on the Declaration of Independence.
This is going to be such a wonderful event! Don't miss this chance to learn even more about these amazing books (and the five amazing women they teach about). Stop by and hear even more detail from ALEX PRUD'HOMME — the great-nephew of Julia Child! — for Born Hungry: Julia Child Becomes “The French Chef”, JEANNE WALKER HARVEY for Ablaze With Color: A Story of Painter Alma Thomas, ELLA SCHWARTZ for Her Name Was Mary Katharine, FIONA ROBINSON for Out of the Shadows: How Lotte Reiniger Made the First Animated Movie, and SARAH GLENN MARSH for Dragon Bones: The Fantastic Fossil Discoveries of Mary Anning.
