Library welcomes award-winning artist
This year marks the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the ALA Coretta Scott King Book Awards, and at 6 p.m., Feb. 20, the Willoughby Hills Library will join the nationwide celebration with a special tribute event.
The library will host “An Illustrators’ Conversation with CSK Book Award Winner — Floyd Cooper” in conversation with local fine artist Jerome White.
Cooper received a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award in 2008 for his illustrations in “The Blacker the Berry” and earned three additional Coretta Scott King Award Honors for other illustrations in addition to other national honors.
Both artists will have original artwork on display and books for the audiences to enjoy during the month of February. A Cultural Exchange bookstore will provide books for purchase during the signing reception to be held after the program.
