Author/Illustrator Event with Matt de la Peña & Loren Long!

Dear Families,

I am thrilled to share with you that author Matt de la Peña and illustrator Loren Long will be visiting the Lower School next Friday, January 12 to speak to students about their new picture book, Love.


Matt's picture book, Last Stop on Market Street, won the Newbery Award in 2016, the most prestigious award in children's literature. He also writes novels for children and teens.


Loren is the author/illustrator of the NYT bestselling Otis picture book series. He also illustrated Barack Obama's Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.


We are so excited to welcome this duo to Lower School in celebration of their Love-ly new collaboration! Thanks to Flyleaf Books for offering us this excellent opportunity!


If you would like to attend Flyleaf's public author event, Matt and Loren will be presenting there on Thursday, January 11 at 6pm.

Happy reading,

Natalie
