Whether Pride and Prejudice or The Empire Strikes Back, Holman Wang’s
beautifully-detailed books abridge literary and cinematic classics into
just 12 words and 12 needle-felted images. These original, exquisite and
joyful interpretations have earned accolades in The New York Times, The
Wall Street Journal, People, and The Globe & Mail, amongst others. Who
would guess that Wang is also a lawyer by day? In this family-friendly
event, the felt artist and author shares how he discovered his passion for
children’s books, creates his art and juggles careers. He’ll also talk
about his newest books, Great Job, Mom! and Great Job, Dad!, hailed by the
School Library Journal as “masterpiece[s]”. Bring your little
ones—and your own creative ambitions!
