Portrait of Juana Martinez-NealJoin Worlds of Words for a reception for our current exhibit with special guests, award-winning illustrators, Juana Martinez-Neal and Molly Idle!

Enjoy refreshments, great conversations, time to browse “Critique to Support & Stretch: A Conversation between Juana Martinez-Neal & Molly Idle,” and experiences around art critique and the elements of art.

Guests will want to pay careful attention to Flora and the Flamingo, a visual narrative Idle illustrated, and Alma and How She Got Her Name, which Martinez-Neal wrote and illustrated. These books earned Caldecott honors and viewing the work up close with comments from the creators is a special experience. The exhibit also includes a recently acquired piece by Martinez-Neal from Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story, which was written by Kevin Noble Maillard and earned the 2020 Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Award and an American Indian Youth Literature Honor by the American Library Association.
