Join us for a dialogue between esteemed curator and champion of children’s literature Lisa Von Drasek and acclaimed Norwegian children’s author Jostein Gaarder. Milkweed Books is pleased to host this lively conversation on the art of storytelling, as both guests explore how children's literature can tap into some of the most profound human experiences: grief, humor, growth, and difference. Also featuring Gaarder's newest picture book, Questions Asked, which poses a series of philosophical questions that arise in childhood and endure throughout a lifetime. Presented in partnership with Elsewhere Editions.
