All Join In!: Children's Books and Art about Families


Ongoing event running from: Sat Sep 21, 2019 - Sat Dec 07, 2019


Lillian H. Smith

This lively exhibit of children's books and art celebrates the family unit in many different forms, from the families we are born into, to the families we choose for ourselves. It also features the work of Canadian author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay and her best-loved brother and sister characters, Stella and Sam, as 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Stella, Star of the Sea.

Free. All welcome.

Located in the Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books, on the 4th floor of the Lillian H. Smith Branch.

The exhibit can be viewed during the Osborne Collection's open hours: Mon-Fri 10-6, Sat 9-5, closed Sun.
