Welcome to Nina's Neighborhood!

Please join us for an evening with Nina Crews, critically acclaimed children's book author and illustrator. She will be at Headquarters Library on Wednesday, February 11, at 6:30 PM.  Nina uses photographs and photo-collages to create energetic stories about young children. Her career began in 1995 with One Hot Summer Day which Kirkus Reviews hailed as "the debut of a welcome new voice and vision." Two of her recent books, The Neighborhood Mother Goose and Below, were ALA Notable selections.

Nina’s work has explored a variety of themes. She has updated classic material in The Neighborhood Mother Goose as well as in her recent titles, The Neighborhood Sing-Along and Jack and the Beanstalk.  She has written stories of children’s imaginary adventures in Below, Sky-High Guy, You Are Here and I’ll Catch the Moon.  She has explored simple experiences of urban childhood in One Hot Summer Day and Snowball.

Nina will read her work and present an introduction to her life as a children’s book author.
