Dragonfly Books is thrilled to celebrate Children’s Book Week with local children’s author and illustrator Katherine Hannigan. Hannigan will lead two free events at Dragonfly Books, including Illustration for Kids at 10:00 AM and a story time at 10:35 AM on Saturday, May 5.

Katherine Hannigan is one of forty featured authors or illustrators appearing across the country during the 99th anniversary Children’s Book Week, which runs from April 30 to May 6.

On May 5th, Children ages 5+ are invited to join Dragonfly Books for a morning of illustration and instruction at 10:00 AM. Hannigan will lead kids through simple methods of drawing to create fun illustrations of their own. This event is free and no registration is required.

At 10:35 AM, children of all ages and families are invited for a special story time with Katherine Hannigan. Hannigan will pull children into imaginative worlds with her entertaining stories and vibrant illustrations.

Katherine Hannigan is the author and illustrator of the picture books Dirt + Water = Mud (Greenwillow Books 2016) and Gwendolyn Grace (Greenwillow Books 2015). She is also the author of the middle grade books Ida B (Greenwillow Books 2004), True (...sort of) (Greenwillow Books 2011), and Emmaline and the Bunny (HarperCollins 2009).

Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national celebration of books for young readers, with 800 schools, libraries, and bookstores hosting events in all 50 states. Children’s Book Week is a cornerstone program of Every Child a Reader, a 501(c)(3) literacy charity dedicated to inspiring a lifelong love of reading in children and teens across America.
