Brian Selznick: Author Visit

Brian Selznick author and illustrator of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” mesmerized Bank Street School for Children students this morning by reading from his latest book “Wonderstruck.” This book features two separate story lines about deaf children who run away to New York City. The first story, told through pictures, is about a girl living in New Jersey in 1927. The second, told through text, is about a boy living in Minnesota in 1977. Eventually, the two stories meet and all is revealed.

E. L. Konigsburg fans will especially enjoy “Wonderstruck” as it features references to events in “From the mixed-up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.” Below is a photograph of Brian Selznick with Bank Street Children’s Librarian Lisa Von Drasek.
