10 Feb Meet the Author: Games Come to Life!
Chris Van Allsburg was disappointed when he was a kid playing board games. He always imagined what it would be like if what happened on the game board happened in real life. That idea stuck with him as he grew up to write and illustrate many award winning books. His writing career has produced amazing books like The Polar Express, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, and Zathura : a Space Adventure. In this Meet-the-Author Book Reading, learn how Chris’ childhood “what if” imaginings helped him write Jumanji.
