Back Stage Pass

Famous athletes, movies stars, and musicians are used to posing for pictures and having eager fans ask for an autograph. Authors and illustrators, especially of children’s books, have recently gotten a taste of this type of fame. Think J.K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter series, or Jeff Kinney, author of the wildly popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. We are lucky enough to have a fabulous children’s illustrator visiting us in two weeks and we’d like to give him a rock star welcome. Will Hillenbrand has illustrated many children's books, the most recent of which, Don’t Slam the Door, has gotten rave reviews for its hilarious illustrations and boisterous rhymes.

So, if you’ve got a budding author or illustrator at home, or just a child who loves to read, bring the whole family to see Will on August 11th from 2pm-3pm at the Centerville Library. I’ll be the one jumping up and down in line waiting for his autograph.
