Artist Charles Vess

Come tonight at 7 p.m. to meet artist Charles Vess, who has illustrated a "Bone" volume among many other books. Tonight, Vess will discuss his beautiful, full-color artwork for a new, critically-acclaimed children’s novel, "The Cats of Tanglewood Forest." Written by Charles de Lint, "The Cats of Tanglewood Forest" tells the story of a girl named Lillian who longs for magic things to happen in her life and then gets more than she bargained for when she is transformed into a cat.

At our program, Vess also will talk about other children’s books he has illustrated, including "Blueberry Girl," a picture book written by Neil Gaiman and "Rose," a "Bone" prequel written by Jeff Smith. Politics & Prose Bookstore will be selling Vess’ books at the program, but no purchase is required to attend this free event. Registration is encouraged but not required; to register, please go to: Program Registration - Takoma Park Maryland Library or call us at 301-891-7259.
