Trailblazing Women Celebration: Gwendolyn Brooks
Thursday, June 4, 2020
The Larkspur Library is excited to partner with PBS Books and with Chicago PBS to bring you this virtual event!
The virtual engagement event will feature a talk with Suzanne Slade (Author) and Cozbi Cabrera (Illustrator) about "Exquisite: The Poetry and Life of Gwendolyn Brooks." During this event, you will hear the read-aloud of the book, learn about the surprising 5+ year research process (primary source research) in a fun and relatable way, and have the opportunity to investigate the author/illustrator's collaboration and inspiration in this fabulous children's book about this iconic woman. It will be moderated by PBS Chicago's VP of Community Engagement Tim Rusell.
