Imagination Friday with Adam Rex and Laura Park

November 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

A pink piece of candy stands on top of a theater marquee sign with the title written in it. The candy is surrounded by different parts of the human body and small carrots are in the spotlight below.Meet Adam Rex and Laura Park, the creators of a new picturebook, Digestion: The Musical. This hilarious picturebook is about the most basic process of the human body—digesting food! Candy has finally made it into the human body and her “big break” is to be successfully digested. The scientific process of digestion is told through a musical with Candy as a small-town kid who wants to make it big and includes cameos for body parts that help transform food from ingredients to nutrition. An epic adventure through the human body, from bite to bottom.

Adam and Laura will share their new book, invite children to draw, and answer questions.
