Roger Mello at the Chicago Public Library
October 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Roger Mello for a story time and drawing session at the Thomas Hughes Children’s Library.
Roger Mello has illustrated over 100 titles – 22 of which he also wrote – and his unique style and adroit sense of color continues to push the boundaries of children’s book illustration. Rather than relying on written narrative to tell the story, Mello invites his young readers to fill the gaps with imagination. Mello has won numerous awards for writing and illustrating, including three of IBBY’s Luis Jardim Awards, the Best Children’s Book 2002 International Award, and the 2014 Hans Christian Andersen Award. In 2018, You Can’t Be Too Careful! was named a Batchelder Honor Book by the American Library Association and Charcoal Boys will be out with Elsewhere Editions this fall.
