Special Storytime: Randall de Sève and Pamela Zagarenski

November 17, 2018
2:00pm
Free with Museum Admission

In Zola’s Elephant, New York Times bestselling author Randall de Sève and two-time Caldecott-honor winning artist Pamela Zagarenski tell a tender, witty friendship story of imagination gone wild, and show how assumptions often cause us to misjudge—and miss out. But with a little courage, new opportunities and new friendships can be made.
