Meet ‘Fry Bread’ author and illustrator at library

Families, students, teachers, and children’s book lovers are invited to the Wood County District Public Library’s meet the author and illustrator program with award-winning author and illustrator of “Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story,” Kevin Noble Maillard and Juana Martinez-Neal.

This author-and-illustrator duo will be visiting the library on March 25 at a.m. in the atrium of the library, 251 N. Main St. Free copies of “Fry Bread” will be distributed to the first 100 families to attend this event.

Told in lively and powerful verse by debut author Kevin Noble Maillard, “Fry Bread” is an evocative depiction of a modern Native American family, vibrantly illustrated by Pura Belpre Award winner and Caldecott Honoree Juana Martinez-Neal. This is a great opportunity for teachers and students to meet and listen to an award-winning author and illustrator, and a chance for children to meet their favorite book’s creators.

During the program, there will be a book discussion where Maillard and Martinez-Neal will discuss the creation of “Fry Bread,” followed by a Q&A and a book signing. This program is supported by the estate of Marjorie Conrad.

This program is presented in partnership with Bowling Green State University’s In the Round series. BGSU will host Maillard and Martinez-Neal on March 24.
