On Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m., author Julie Fogliano will showcase her new picture book, Just In Case You Want to Fly
. The book is illustrated by Christian Robinson, who won a 2016 Caldecott Honor for his art in Last Stop On Market Street.
In its review, Publishers Weekly noted: “This bubbly excursion by the team behind When’s My Birthday?
celebrates parents’ impulse to give their children the world: ‘Just in case you want to fly/ here’s some wind/ and here’s the sky’…. The verse and images follow a bedtime trajectory… but contain enough energy to be read anytime…. Robinson extends classic picture book scenes of play and home life to show all sorts of children finding magic in all kinds of places.” At our event, Politics and Prose will be selling copies of Fogliano's book, but our event is free and no purchase is required to attend.
