BIG TREE By Brian Selznick Book Event

April 29 from 3pm – 5pm

Recommended For Ages 8 & Up

Chicago Children’s Theatre and The Book Stall of Winnetka invite you to join us for a very special event with #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Brian Selznick. Appearing as part of a national tour celebrating the release of his new critically acclaimed book, BIG TREE, Brian will give a presentation and a talk-back with CCT Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell, to be followed by a book signing.
Selznick is the writer and illustrator of “The Houdini Box,” the Caldecott-winning “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” and illustrator of the 20th anniversary editions of the “Harry Potter” series. His newest New York Times bestselling novel, “Big Tree,” is a trailblazing adventure, featuring nearly 300 pages of illustrations, in which the fate of all life on Earth may depend on two little sibling seeds Louise and Merwin.

Selznick says of the book: “BIG TREE is about a kind of hope that can be found in nature. It’s about surviving by working together to create a community. It’s about moving forward, planning for the future, and growing—even in the face of destruction. The natural world also offers so many beautiful metaphors to help us live.”


The event is free, but space is limited. Once capacity has been reached, we will be keeping a waiting list.

You will have the opportunity to pre-purchase the book for pickup at the event.
