As part of our Authors & Illustrators event, the Friends of the North Logan Library are hosting Kevin Hawkes, illustrator of IMAGINE THAT!—Random House’s new book, to be released this September—explaining many fascinating details about Dr. Seuss. Local Seuss fans will get a sneak peek at the book and discover behind-the-scenes insights.
Hawkes, and author Judy Sierra, were selected by Random House and the Geisel family to create a kid-friendly exploration of the early career of Dr. Seuss (a.k.a. Ted Geisel). They captured the familiar bouncy rhythm and colorful art associated with the Seuss books to reveal little-known facts about Dr. Seuss and his creative talents. Hawkes, whose parents reside in North Logan, Utah, will talk about his illustrating experience and share interesting tidbits from the book, as well as demonstrate how he navigates the process of creating his characters. As a bonus, Hawkes will also share another of his illustrated books coming out in August, Dogosaurus Rex.
This evening will be a hit with all ages. And it is FREE!
Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite hat, enjoy the coloring table and come and celebrate at the Library on July 17 at 7 p.m.
