Join us on Thursday, February 16th, as we continue our celebration of Black History Month, which will focus on “Picturing Black Childhood: African American Images in Children’s Literature.” E.B. Lewis, a pioneer in the field of children’s illustration and a repeat recipient of the Children’s Africana Book Award, will discuss his career, during which he illustrated more than 70 children’s books, including Nikki Grimes’ Talkin’ About Bessie: The Story of Aviator Elizabeth Coleman, which received the 2003 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Campus Center’s Raptor Roost. All are welcome, but registration is required.
