November is National Picture Book Month and the Cone Park Branch will present the documentary I Know A Man...Ashley Bryan on November 4th at 5:30 pm. Ashley Bryan gave the world an invaluable wealth of picture books, most often detailing the African American experience. He was a nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2006 and he won the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his contribution to American children's literature in 2009.
In addition to a viewing of the documentary and a display of Mr. Bryan's works, patrons will have an opportunity to check out items from our collection.
At 4:00 that same day, children will have an opportunity to create their own picture books in a program designed just for them.
Please join us at the Cone Park Branch as we explore the works Ashley Bryan!
