Online Program

Join Hans Christian Andersen award-winners Roger Mello and Peter Sís as they come together to discuss their incredible bodies of work, what compels them to create children's books, and the deeply personal stories they both bring to life in their illustrations. Moderated by Lisa von Drasek, curator of the Children's Literature Research Collections, University of Minnesota. Co-hosted by Archipelago Books.

Roger Mello has illustrated over 100 titles – 22 of which he also wrote – and his unique style and adroit sense of color continues to push the boundaries of children’s book illustration. He has won numerous awards for writing and illustrating, including three of IBBY’s Luis Jardim Awards, the Best Children’s Book 2002 International Award, and the 2014 Hans Christian Andersen Award. In 2018, You Can’t Be Too Careful! was named a Batchelder Honor Book by the American Library Association. 

Peter Sís is an internationally acclaimed illustrator, author, and filmmaker. His books, Starry Messenger: Galileo Galilei, Tibet Through the Red Box, and The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain were each named Caldecott Honor Books by the American Library Association, and The Wall also was awarded the Robert F. Sibert Medal. Sís is the first children’s book illustrator to win the MacArthur Fellowship, and in 2012 won the Hans Christian Andersen Award for lifelong achievement. His new book is Nicky & Vera: A Quiet Hero of the Holocaust and the Children He Rescued.
