Award–winning illustrator Brian Floca presents his new book Old Wolf (written by Avi, ages 8–12) with a reading and Q&A featuring art activities. Hunting—the predator, and its prey—is at the heart of this riveting and suspenseful novel from Newbery Medalist Avi and Caldecott Medalist Brian Floca.
FREE ADMISSION to Wordstock for attendees 17 years of age and younger, and with a valid high school student ID.
Brian’s books as author and illustrator include Locomotive, for which he received the 2014 Caldecott Medal; Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11; Lightship; The Racecar Alphabet; and Five Trucks. He has illustrated Avi's Poppy Stories series; Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan's Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring; Kate Messner's Marty McGuire novels; and Lynne Cox's Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas. He has most recently illustrated a new novel by Avi, Old Wolf.
In addition to the Caldecott Medal, Brian's books have received four Robert F. Sibert Honor awards, a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators, and have twice been selected for The New York Times' annual 10 Best Illustrated Books list.
Brian Floca will give a Pop-Up Reading at 12pm in Northwest Art (Main Building, 3rd Floor).
