Legendary children’s author and Caldecott-winning illustrator Kevin Henkes will be at the Main Library from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 1. The public is invited to meet the author of such award-winners as “Kitten’s First Full Moon,” “ Waiting,” and “The Year of Billy Miller” and join him for a celebration of the release of his 50th book, “Egg.” 

Children’s Librarian Brian Wilson said, “We are thrilled that Mr. Henkes will be visiting EPL to celebrate this milestone, the release of his 50th book.”

Seating is limited and registration is required by visiting epl.org or by calling 847-448-8610. Because of possible high demand, registrants are asked to be present at least 10 minutes before the program begins; unclaimed seats will go to those in the stand-by line.
