Storytime and Book Signing with Illustrator Jen Corace
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Children’s illustrator and RISD graduate Jen Corace joins us for storytime and a signing of her new book House Finds a Home, the latest selection for our Charter Kids Book Box!
Reminiscent of the children’s classic The Little House comes a picture book about a house and how the world changes both outside and inside of it over generations.
House has always loved the people inside. When they move out, House’s halls grow quiet, his windows dark. He hopes with all his shingles that there will be other inhabitants and joys to discover. As generations pass, House experiences new people and traditions and learns that love can come in many forms.
Reminiscent of the beloved children’s classic The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton, Katy S. Duffield’s lyrical, heartwarming text and Jen Corace’s exquisite illustrations bring warmth and vulnerability to the different ways a house becomes a home.
Jen Corace is the illustrator of many bestselling books for children, including Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Telephone by Mac Barnett. She has a BFA in illustration from Rhode Island School of Design, and she lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
