NOBS Forum: Meet Jason Chin, Award-Winning Author and Illustrator (Zoom)
Join NOBS for a very special Forum featuring Jason Chin, award-winning author and illustrator of children’s books. Chin’s latest book, Watercress (authored by Andrea Wang), won a Caldecott Medal. In awarding the medal, the book was described as “Simply stunning. Andrea Wang and Jason Chin’s Watercress is the thought-provoking, gorgeously illustrated story of a first-generation girl coming to terms with, and ultimately celebrating, her Chinese heritage. There is so much to glean from Watercress that you’ll want to read it over and over.
During the Forum, Jason Chin will be interviewed by NOBS member Will McCullam, a specialist in collecting children’s books and owner of Cattermole Books. This event will be held via Zoom.
