Bestselling author and illustrator Brian Selznick has transported all kinds of audiences across space and time: his historical fiction book The Invention of Hugo Cabret was adapted into Scorsese’s Oscar-winning Hugo, and his illustrations have appeared in children’s and YA classics, from picture books to the 20th-anniversary editions of Harry Potter. His newest novel Kaleidoscope, told in a series of vignettes, uses the fantasy grounding Selznick has mastered to tell a story of love and grief. A virtual broadcast will be available, and the ticket for his presentation on Kaleidoscope comes with a signed copy of the book.
