How Picture Books Can Change The World

This Tuesday at The Adventure School Store, I'll be delivering a lecture entitled "How Picture Books Can Change the World." Should be a lot of fun! I'm pretty passionate about the subject, and it's an honor to be given the opportunity to share that passion with others. For those who can't make it, I'll try'n get some video of the lecture up here. Here's the official info [taken from The Adventure School Facebook page]:

More Info Picturebooks, those slim volumes that magically weave together images and words, are the first window readers have to the universe of possibilities outside their firsthand experiences. Often simply illustrated and written, picturebooks nonetheless foster an intricate bond with their audience—one that is better understood in terms of creation rather than consumption. Drawing upon semiotic theory, as well as classic and contemporary titles, illustrator Zack Rock explores the nature of picturebooks, how they can shape reality itself, and how they can even change the world. 

Tickets to this lecture are $3 and are available for purchase at the door or in our online store: http://bit.ly/nty1kN
