Storytime with Roger Mello at Books of Wonder
October 14, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join the award-winning Brazilian illustrator Roger Mello for an evening of conversation and a book reading of his latest book Feather, written by one of China’s most celebrated children’s authors, Cao Wenxuan. Born in 1965, Roger Mello grew up in the midst of Brazil’s military dictatorship. An illustrator, writer, and playwright, his first book available in English is Be Careful What You Wish For. In addition to his vibrant art, many of his children’s books are characterized by striking social criticism, in particular of child labor practices. In 2014, he made history by becoming the first illustrator from Latin America to win the Hans Christian Andersen award, an award colloquially referred to as the Nobel prize for children’s literature.
