Visual Narrative Reception
July 25, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Enjoy refreshments, great conversations, time to browse our new exhibit of visual narratives (often called wordless books), and experiences we created around these books.
We are fortunate to have received the traveling International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) Silent Book exhibition, a collection of global visual narratives, but the exhibit will only be here until the first week of August before it returns to Europe. These visual narratives were collected from a range of countries as part of an IBBY project for children in refugee camps in Italy. The focus on visual images, rather than words, invited children from many different cultures and languages to engage with constructing their own stories from the illustrations. Please come to see this set of “silent books” from around the world as well as the experiences we have created to invite children into these books.
RSVP to email@example.com is preferred but not required.
