Meet the Author & Illustrator of Fry Bread: Kevin Noble Maillard & Juana Martinez-Neal

Families, students, teachers, and children’s book lovers are invited to the Wood County District Public Library’s meet the author & illustrator program with award-winning author and illustrator of Fry Bread, Kevin Noble Maillard and Juana Martinez-Neal. This prestigious author and illustrator duo will be visiting the library on Saturday, March 25 at 10:00 am in the Bowling Green Library Atrium.

Told in lively and powerful verse by debut author Kevin Noble Maillard, Fry Bread is an evocative depiction of a modern Native American family, vibrantly illustrated by Pura Belpre Award winner and Caldecott Honoree Juana Martinez-Neal. You can read or listen to Fry Bread on hoopla here.

This is a great opportunity for teachers and students to meet and listen to an award-winning author and illustrator, and a chance for children to meet their favorite book’s creators.

During the program, there will be a book discussion where Kevin and Juana will discuss the creation of Fry Bread, followed by a Q&A and a book signing. This program is generously supported by the estate of Marjorie Conrad.

In addition to Fry Bread, copies of Alma and How She Got Her Name, I Don't Care, and Swashby and the Sea, all illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal, will be sold by the Mazza Museum. Copies of each book will be $15.00.

This program is presented in partnership with Bowling Green State University’s In the Round series.
