Join us for a wonderful evening with Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Peña and NYT bestseller Loren Long, who won the Hicklebee's Book of the Year for OTIS. They will be sharing their new picture book LOVE, a story about the strongest bond there is and the diverse and powerful ways it connects us all.

«In the beginning there is light
and two wide-eyed figures standing near the foot of your bed
and the sound of their voices is love.

A cab driver plays love softly on his radio
while you bounce in back with the bumps of the city
and everything smells new, and it smells like life.»

In this heartfelt celebration of love, Matt & Loren depict the many ways we experience this universal bond, which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. With a lyrical text that's soothing and inspiring, this tender tale is a needed comfort and a new classic that will resonate with readers of every age.
