NYSCI’S FIRST VIRTUAL AUTHOR LIBRARY VISIT
Monday, January 20th at 2:30 pm
Martin Luther King’s Birthday
The Little Plant Doctor: The Story of George Washington Carver
by Jean Marzollo
We are working with our NYSCI comrade and Tech Wiz, Anthony Negron, to offer visitors a new way to enjoy meeting authors and learning about their books…virtually! With state of the art technology, we will certainly increase the number of available authors and illustrators to grace our library programs and benefit our visitors.
Our Virtual Visit debut will feature Jean Marzollo, the award-winning author of over 100 books for kids, including the I SPY series. Ms. Marzollo will read from her book about George Washington Carver’s life and his love for and work with plants.
This biography has been a favorite of ours since it’s publication in 2011. The story of this important scientist who changed the life of those in his native south is coupled with bright and bold paintings.
Although we will be unable to offer visitors a chance to buy a signed copy of this book, we are interested to try something new.
Ms. Marzollo has been a good friend to our library. Last year, we noticed one of the visual clues missing from an I SPY book. We wrote to her and she promptly sent us a replacement… PLUS sending us a very generous donation of some of her other wonderful books.
