Special Saturday Storytime with Matthew Cordell: Explorers

Community Event

We are thrilled to welcome Caldecott Award-winning author and illustrator Matthew Cordell back to The Book Stall for a Special Edition of our weekly Saturday Storytime. He’ll be reading from his newest title, Explorers, on Saturday, December 7th at 10:30 AM in the store. As an extra treat, Matthew will draw for us! This event is free and open to the picture book fans of all ages.

About the Book: When a family goes to a local museum, a boy notices a homeless man sitting outside, making brightly colored origami birds. He convinces his dad to buy a bird the man makes just for him. Once inside the museum, his little sister takes the bird and launches it into the air. Is it lost? Soon another boy helps him look, and the paper bird brings two families—and two new friends—together. With the style he perfected in Wolf in the Snow, Matthew Cordell shows how an ordinary family outing can be both extraordinary and magical.
