Imagination Friday with Kate DiCamillo and Sophie Blackall
Join us on Friday, November 12, 1:00 to 1:45 to meet Kate DiCamillo and Sophie Blackall as they introduce their highly anticipated new graphic novel, The Beatryce Prophecy, a fantasy about fate, love, and the power of words. Set in a time of war, Beatryce lives in a world where reading and writing are against the law, leading her on a dangerous quest to unseat the king and change that world.

Kate and Sophie will share their new book and process of writing and illustrating, invite children to create their own stories, and answer questions.

Imagination Fridays is co-sponsored by the Tucson Festival of Books and Worlds of Words/University of Arizona and will occur one Friday a month at 1:00-1:45 pm from September to December with a new author and/or illustrator to introduce a brand new book. Add excitement to Fridays with world-renowned children’s authors and illustrators to promote new books and encourage children as readers, writers, and illustrators.
