World Premiere

Documentary Feature | USA | 2023 | English | 84 minutes

STORY & PICTURES BY takes us on a journey through the beloved world of children’s picture books, led by three contemporary stars of the new ''golden age'' of kids’ lit–Christian Robinson (''Last Stop on Market Street''), Yuyi Morales (''Dreamers''), and Mac Barnett (''Extra Yarn''). Emmy Award®-nominated director Joanna Rudnick uses archival access, untapped insights, and stop-motion paper animation to explore their timely new work, as well as timeless classics such as ''Goodnight Moon'' and ''Where the Wild Things Are.'' Delightful and family-friendly, STORY & PICTURES BY shows how this singular art form can champion the marginalized, provide children with ways to make sense of their place in the world, and foster a lifelong love of reading.


Scheduled to attend: director Joanna Rudnick, illustrator Christian Robinson, producers Korelan Matteson and Tim Horsburgh

Tickets to the 10/7 World Premiere will include a post-screening reception at the Library.
