Author and Illustrator Lois Ehlert @ MPL

Come to the Central Library on Wednesday, November 9, to see Lois Ehlert discuss her work as an author and illustrator and share how her art became an iconic part of the Central Library. Ehlert, the creator of such famous children's books as Nuts to you!, Color Zoo, and my personal favorite, Top Cat, designed the animal shapes inlaid into the floor in the Betty Brinn Children's room.

This program is open to the public and part of the MPL docents' ongoing enrichment program. A book signing follows the event.
