Jon Klassen, Caldecott medalist and #1 New York Times author and illustrator, joins us to read and sign his newest creation, THE SKULL, a creepy tale of things that go bump in the night, with a warm note of friendship at its heart. Inspired by a Tyrolean folktale, Jon Klassen combines his talent for deadpan humor with spine-chilling suspense in this story of a little runaway girl named Otilla. From Alice, “I’m absolutely obsessed with this! Jon Klassen’s Tyrolean folktale retelling is poignant, mysterious, and so so lovely. I just finished reading and can already tell that the story and its gorgeous illustrations will stay with me for a while.” There will be a reading, Q & A and book signing at this very special event!

Jon Klassen is the creator of the #1 New York Times best-selling I Want My Hat Back, which won a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor, and its companions: This Is Not My Hat, which won a Caldecott Medal and a Kate Greenaway Medal, and We Found a Hat, named a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book of the Year. He is also the author-illustrator of The Rock from the Sky and the illustrator of Extra Yarn, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Triangle, Square, and Circle, all by Mac Barnett; House Held Up by Trees by Ted Kooser; the Skunk and Badger series by Amy Timberlake; and the middle-grade Pax series by Sara Pennypacker. Originally from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Jon Klassen now lives in Los Angeles.
